Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Natalie M. Neu, MD (Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons)
Description: This is a concise review of classic cases of common pediatric infectious diseases accompanied by beautiful pictures to highlight the presentations.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as study guide and review of classic presentations in pediatric infectious diseases. It is designed to make readers review the differential diagnoses for diseases, understand the relevant studies needed to make the diagnosis, and guide them to the most common treatment regimens. In the practice of infectious diseases, "a picture is worth a thousand words," and this book is a worthy challenge for the reader.
Audience: It appears to be written for students, residents, and practitioners who might need a quick review before taking a board exam. The material is presented in a case format, similar to what residents use in a morning report type setting. The author leads one from presentation to diagnosis and treatment for each disease entity. He then wraps up the discussion with some relevant pearls. The author is the chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Infectious Diseases.
Features: The cases include common pediatric infectious diseases that usually have dermatologic manifestations. They are nicely divided into the affected age groups: newborn and infants, 1-5 year olds, 6-12 year olds, and teenagers. This structure helps the reader to categorize diseases and disease processes, which is an important for a study guide. The color photographs are well done and especially helpful for the reader when rare diseases are presented such as measles and RMSF. The title is misleading since often the cases are not challenging but rather classic presentations of common problems. I would have emphasized the pictorial nature of this review as this is its greatest strength. In addition, the text is written in a familiar voice ("you see a patient...") which was unexpected and a little distracting.
Assessment: This is a worthwhile contribution to the field of pediatric infectious diseases. It provides terrific photos, quick and concise presentations, treatment options, and relevant pearls for common diseases and some not so common processes. References to classic articles describing the clinical diseases would have strengthened the book. However, as it stands it will be a great resource for students and residents.
