Overview

The CD-ROM accesses a web-based version of this textbook which features weekly updates, an image slide library, case studies and review questions (many of which are not in the original textbook), and patient instruction handouts for some 100 pediatric conditions. Edited by Behrman (pediatrics, Stanford U. School of Medicine), Kliegman (pediatrics, Medical College of Wisconsin), and Jenson (pediatrics, Eastern Virginia Medical School), the textbook seeks to be comprehensive in its treatment of the medical problems faced by children. In addition to the standard information on diseases and disorders, organized by bodily system, the editors include sections on psychological disorders, social issues, children with special health needs, nutrition, development, and environmental health hazards.
