Editorial Reviews

Intended to help improve communication between health-care providers and parents by presenting information about many common pediatric problems concisely and uniformly. Each condition or problem appears on its own page, so data can be copied in the doctor's office for distribution to the child's caretaker. Each entry (organized alphabetically) includes basic facts about the condition as well as information about the diagnosis (e.g., questions the doctor might ask, what the doctor looks for), general treatment, medications, follow-up, and answers to common questions. The editor is a pediatrician with the U. of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
