Overview

This text aims to distill the oral teaching rounds-based approaches to clinical diagnosis of common pediatric programs that is used in the training programs of many children's hospitals and pediatric residency training programs. Professors of pediatrics Kliegman, Greenbaum, and Lye (all of the Medical College of Wisconsin) describe the diagnosis process, emphasizing the history, guided by the chief complaint, and the physical examination guided by clues from the history, with lab studies used to support rather than make the diagnosis. Structuring their text around this model, they offer 62 chapters on respiratory, cardiac, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, developmental/psychiatric, neurosensory, orthopedic, hematologic, infectious, and endocrine/metabolic disorders.
