Overview

Illustrated Textbook of Pediatrics 2/e covers the core curriculum for undergraduate teaching of clinical paediatrics. The second edition retains the innovative, full-color design of the first, incorporating numerous color photographs, diagrams, illustrated case histories and clinical hints & tips highlighted by a 'smiley face' icon. The writing style is succinct, with bullet-point lists used to facilitate reading and learning, and the content is pared down to cover what students really need to know . There is one new chapter on The Child in Society covering general issues in child health in developed and developing countries. All the system-based chapters have been thoroughly revised and coverage of ethics, evidence-based medicine and developmental pediatrics has been expanded.
