This book is a complete guide to the diagnosis of diseases and disorders in children, with an emphasis on the importance of accurate history taking and thorough physical examination.
Each disorder is presented in a step by step manner, beginning with its etiology and pathology, then clinical features and differential diagnosis. Key learning points are provided at the end of each topic.
The final sections discuss related topics including prescribing for children (a separate chapter examines prescription for play), rehabilitation, emotional and behavioural disorders, nutrition, and surgical oncology.
Edited by recognised, Glasgow-based specialists Krishna M Goel and Robert Carachi, this comprehensive manual includes more than 1600 clinical photographs and illustrations.
This atlas has been designed to be used by paediatricians at whatever stage of training and experience they are, but in particular, it should assist those taking postgraduate examinations in the specialty. For many paediatric conditions, a pictorial representation is a significant factor in making the correct diagnosis.
This well-illustrated comprehensive volume with coloured high quality clinical photographs provides an extensive practical view of paediatric diseases, both medical and surgical. Key learning points with bullet pointed lists provide guidance to vital issues, giving it an advantage over many of the more discursive texts previously available. Case studies enhance the text and root it into the context of clinical practice.
The diverse authorship of the 38 chapters in the atlas reflects the specialist interests now required to provide a comprehensive view of paediatric disease, to do this 55 authors from 7 countries who have contributed to the text.
