Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Russell W Steele, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This pediatric infectious disease atlas, designed as a companion to the American Academy of Pediatrics' 2006 Red Book, is intended to be a study guide for students, residents, and practitioners.
Purpose: The visual representations of common and atypical clinical manifestations of infectious diseases are accompanied by diagnostic information not contained in the current Red Book. It is emphasized that the reader should consult reference texts for more complete information. The purpose therefore, is to provide a "training tool and quick reference" for the intended audience.
Audience: The editor states that the audience is "students, (pediatric) residents, and practitioners." It is unlikely to offer new information to pediatric or internal medicine infectious disease fellows or pediatric infectious disease specialists who are likely to have slide collections similar to those in this atlas.
Features: This atlas is not comprehensive in that it does not cover all infectious diseases likely to be encountered in clinical practice. Also, it does not include skin rashes or diseases often confused with infectious processes. However, the 125 infections that are included are illustrated with well done photographs and brief discussions.
Assessment: This atlas is a little disappointing in that most of these diseases can be reviewed on Web sites where there are actually better photographs. Also, the index is incomplete, e.g. hand, foot, mouth disease is not included, and the text summaries are quite variable, obviously a result of the multiple contributors involved in this book. There are other general infectious disease, pediatric infectious disease, and general dermatology atlases that offer similar information and in some ways are superior.
