The product of a world center of excellence in teaching and medical and surgical practice, second edition of a bestseller combines the advantages of a colour atlas with those of a short textbook covering clinical features, epidemiology, investigations, and differential diagnosis. Illustrations include clinical photos, imaging, charts, graphs, and histology where appropriate. The author/editor team, supported by specialist contributions from clinicians at Institute of Child Health/Great Ormond Street, offers an unmatched range of expertise in a compact volume. The book is of lasting reference value to pediatricians in training and practice, and to professionals in many other disciplines.
"The production values of this book are excellent; it is beautifully produced with loads of illustrations such as pictures, tables and radiological images… the book is so well put together that it is very tempting to simply open it up and read it for the sake of interest, education and curiosity. It is a pleasure to read sections at random and that is a tribute to what an excellent book this is." —Dr Harry Brown, Glycosmedia
Praise for the First Edition:
"It is beyond comparison with any other textbook available in the market. This is the best paediatric book I have seen in my 24-year paediatric career … A must read for any paediatric trainee or paediatrician anywhere in the world."
—BMA Medical Book Competition
"This book's cover will never have to be dusted off… [it is an] all encompassing coffer of paediatric knowledge."
—Archives of Disease in Childhood
"Excellent… It is strongly suggested that not only you, but also your colleagues and students, always have it within reach."
"Ideal for quick reference… concise and understandable irrespective of the reader's previous level of experience."
—The British Journal of Hospital Medicine
