Overview

This uniquely comprehensive work provides a pictorial guide to the whole spectrum of diseases and disorders of the respiratory tract in children. It covers the ear nose and throat, upper and lower airways, and encompasses not only the many conditions that are commonly encountered, but also those that are rarer or more difficult to recognise and diagnose. These include the increasingly important areas of sleep disorders, where patient assessment may present a challenge. Designed to aid the clinician in making a rapid and accurate diagnosis, this Atlas will be of interest to paediatricians, respiratory physicians, and ENT specialists.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jay P. Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a relatively brief (109 pages) pictorial atlas on a wide spectrum of respiratory diseases in children. The beautiful illustrations are complemented by concise text describing the disease processes, diagnostic techniques, and management. The editors and contributors are from the U.K., Canada, and Hong Kong.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a pictorial guide to a wide spectrum of childhood diseases of the lung and respiratory tract. Both common and some rare diseases are covered. The book is designed to help clinicians make visual diagnoses with the aid of superb illustrations, and it certainly meets this limited objective.
Audience: It is aimed at clinicians, primarily general pediatric, pulmonary, and ENT clinicians, although advanced trainees also will benefit from its high quality illustrations. Lecturers and others looking for visual examples of certain respiratory pathology will also find this book worthwhile.
Features: The book covers nine different areas of pulmonary and airway diseases in children. A rare condition in this country, childhood tuberculosis, gets an entire chapter. However, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, a common malady of premature infants in the U.S., is not mentioned. The section on sleep-disordered breathing in children is particularly well done. The color pictures of clinical findings are superb and the main reason I would want this in my library.
Assessment: This is a superb pictorial atlas of childhood respiratory disorders. It is not a comprehensive respiratory textbook like Kendig's Disorders of the Respiratory Tract in Children, 7th edition, Chernick et al. (Elsevier, 2006), but the superb illustrations are accompanied by well-referenced, up-to-date, concise clinical information. I am not aware of a comparable pictorial atlas for this area of medicine.
