Book Description

The Great Ormond Street Handbook of Paediatrics draws on the extraordinary knowledge and expertise of clinicians at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust, the UK’s premier academic biomedical research centre in paediatrics. Since its foundation in 1852, it has been transformed into one of the great children’s hospitals of the world with an international reputation for work of the highest quality in the treatment of children with a wide range of serious conditions.

This new edition of a bestseller provides an all-encompassing coverage of a wide range of paediatric conditions. It provides the clinical presentation, incidence, diagnosis, aetiology/pathogenesis, complications, treatment, management and prognosis for most conditions. Providing a comprehensive approach, the editors are supported by contributions from specialists associated with the hospital, thus offering an unmatched range of expertise in a compact volume.

The book is also accompanied by more than 1000 illustrations, including clinical photos, imaging, charts, graphs and histology, where appropriate. They enhance the knowledge necessary to make informed and accurate diagnosis. Its easy-to-read format as well as its comprehensive nature makes it a useful resource for those who treat children.
