Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jay P. Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine)
Description: The sixth edition of this standard text on infections of the fetus and neonate comes only four years after the previous edition (2001), perhaps recognizing the rapid changes that are occurring in this area of medicine. This is the most comprehensive book on this subject and it is written and edited by the leading authorities in the field. Two new editors (Carol Baker, MD, and Christopher Wilson, MD) have been added for this edition.
Purpose: The book is designed to provide definitive coverage of the microbiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infections of the fetus and newborn including those acquired in utero, during delivery, and in the early months of life. It is comprehensive, providing information on infections in both the developed and underdeveloped parts of the world. Having this up-to-date information in one resource is a worthy objective and it is met well in this book by the outstanding group of contributors.
Audience: It is aimed primarily at neonatologists, pediatricians, obstetricians, perinatologists, and infectious disease practitioners. Sections on breast-feeding and infection transmission make it useful for lactation counselors and infection control officers. The depth of the chapters and the excellent references will provide valuable information for physicians in training and scientists in related fields, such as microbiology.
Features: The book starts with general information about perinatal infections, then a review of bacterial, viral, protozoan, helminthic, and fungal infections, and then a closing section on infection control, laboratory aids, and pharmacology of antimicrobial agents. Each chapter on pathogens reviews the microbiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical signs and symptoms, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of the infection. The sections on human milk, infection control and the pharmacology of antimicrobial aids are well written and extremely useful.
Assessment: This is the premier text in this field and each edition is better than the last. With two additional editors, the book has expanded its scope and has become a comprehensive, up-to-date resource on infections complicating pregnancy and infancy. Many of the chapters represent the best, state-of-the-art reviews available to practitioners today. This is a magnificent book without peer in the field.
From the Publisher
"Now in its 6th (30th anniversary) edition, Infectious Diseases of the Fetus and Newborn Infant remains the definitive textbook in this field and an indispensable resource for anyone caring for women, fetuese and newborn infants.(...)
The chapters remain thorough, well-referenced, and largely easy-to-read, and they consist of authoritative reviews of topics by leaders in the areas covered. All chapters have been updated with new information that has become available since the previous edition was published in 2001.(...)
Infectious Diseases of the Fetus and Newborn Infant continues to be, in this improved edition, the authorative reference in the field. It should be a primary source of practical, as well as detailed, information for all of those who care for these patients." -- CID 2006:42 (1April)
Vijay V. Yeldandi
This is the fourth edition of a book devoted to infections of the developing fetus and newborn child. The previous edition was published in 1990. The purpose is to present a complete and critical review of infections of the fetus and newborn child. It is directed toward students of medicine, specialists including neurologists, ophthalmologists, primary care physicians, including family doctors, pediatricians, obstetricians, and other health care personnel such as microbiologists, audiologists, psychologists, who are involved in the care of pregnant women and the newborn child. This book has in the beginning of each chapter, an outline, many useful diagrams, pictures of clinical and radiologic features of various infectious diseases. Pictures of histologic features have also been included where pertinent. This new and expanded edition is a timely and magnificent compilation of our current understanding of infections complicating pregnancy and infancy. The contributing authors are authorities in their fields and have presented exhaustive reviews of topics relevant to common infections in pregnancy and early infancy. Several chapters represent state-of-the-art comprehensive reviews incorporating the fruits of several decades of painstaking research. This book brings an enhanced awareness of the critical societal impact these infections have. It is an invaluable resource for obstetricians, pediatricians, and specialists in infectious disease.
