Editorial Reviews

Journal of the American Medical Association
This new edition with logically reorganized chapters and clearer text, photographs, and radiographs, new lucidly written chapters (eg, on hantavirus infections, Whipple disease, and biostatistics), and updated, beautifully written, extensively referenced older chapters, is the leader in its field. Feigin and Cherry's two volumes should be housed in every facility that provides comprehensive care to infants and children with infectious diseases.
Jane L. Burns
This is the fourth edition of a comprehensive textbook of pediatric infectious diseases. This is a much needed update to the 1992 edition. The purpose of this edition is to keep pace with the continued advances in pediatric infectious diseases. New sections include immunomodulating agents, biostatistics, and specific disease entities which are becoming more important in pediatrics. Because the most current edition of this textbook should be on the shelves of many practitioners of pediatric infectious diseases, an update at this time is clearly needed. This book is targeted at the practitioner of pediatric infectious diseases. Although many general pediatricians commonly see patients with infectious diseases, the true audience for this text will continue to be the specialist. The editors have utilized 224 contributors, the majority experts in their fields. The textbook is well illustrated with color plates depicting common pediatric infections. One of the most well-known features of previous editions of this textbook is the exhaustive nature of the references, which continues to be a key feature in the new edition. The reorganization of the table of contents, with organisms grouped according to common features rather than in alphabetical order, is a plus for the student. However, many practitioners have become accustomed to previous edition's organization which facilitated finding specific topics without using the index. Overall, it is an attractive textbook. This new edition of an invaluable textbook in the field of pediatric infectious diseases has several new sections and some much-needed updates that improve upon previous editions. This text is a must for all practitionersof pediatric infectious disease and should be carried by all medical libraries. It is an important teaching tool in residency training programs, both in pediatrics and family medicine.
