Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel R. Bronfin, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This widely respected, comprehensive, and now online synthesis of clinical pediatrics continues as the standard resource in this discipline. The previous edition was published in 2007.
Purpose: The editors state their goal is to "provide the most authoritative coverage of the best approaches to care" of normal and ill neonates, children, and adolescents. They achieve this ambitious goal with a focus on evidence-based medicine while gaining benefit from the "astute clinical experience" of outstanding editors and contributors.
Audience: This book is intended for clinicians, house staff, medical students, and others who care for pediatric patients. However, students are more likely to opt for the abbreviated and less expensive Nelson Essentials of Pediatrics, 6th edition, Marcdante et al. (Elsevier, 2011), with online access.
Features: In addition to new chapters and new disease descriptions, this edition incorporates major advances in genomics, diagnosis, imaging and therapeutics. A superb formulary is found on the website. Of critical importance, this book is not limited to the pathophysiology of pediatric illness, but reviews the psychosocial correlates as well. The impact of translational research is also presented in clear fashion. The online version is more comprehensive than the book. It is easy to navigate, with a clear table of contents and search engine, excellent images, outstanding references, and a self-assessment tool. Also of great value, the website is continually updated as new information becomes available or corrections need to be made.
Assessment: This 19th edition represents a significant advance over previous editions of this authoritative book. It remains the standard in the field of pediatric medicine.

"Nelson Textbook of Pediatrics, now in its 19th Edition, has been widely regarded as the definitive paediatric reference textbook for the best part of a century...In conclusion, I was very impressed with the overall package that I reviewed. The textbook, by itself, would probably not sway me from continuing to use Forfar's as my first-line reference, because I find it easier to navigate , aqnd just as authoritative. The webpage, howeer, was susch a fantastic and individuals at any stage in their career. The paediatric reference book has gone to the next level."
