Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Charles Kantrow, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book provides an excellent format for teaching medical students an approach to clinical medicine in pediatrics. It supplies an outline for evaluating the patient and relative test data, teaching a method of clinical problem solving and providing a guide to reading about specific problems. Sixty cases are used to demonstrate this style of integrating medical knowledge.
Purpose: The book is intended as a means of teaching medical students an organized thought process in clinical medicine using representative cases as examples. It should be extremely useful and certainly meets the author's stated objective.
Audience: The book is written for the medical student interested in pediatrics and it is a useful tool for preparing for entry into clinical medicine and in preparing for testing in pediatric rotations.
Features: It outlines a means to evaluate the patient and the associated information, working through the problem solving and providing a way to further the student's knowledge through the reading of literature. The book then covers 60 cases of classic pediatric problems with a description of pertinent findings, a description of the diagnoses with appropriate definitions, evaluations, and longer term concerns. This is followed by a discussion of clinical information related to this case and ends with several board-type questions and answers. This format clearly holds the attention of the reader through the use of real world examples.
Assessment: With its pragmatic approach to clinical medicine, this book is an excellent teaching textfor the young student in training for pediatrics. The case studies are engaging and well done. The discussion of the cases provides a surprising amount of basic clinical knowledge that can benefit the third and fourth year medical student. It would provide an excellent supplement to any introduction to clinical medicine course in medical school.
