Editorial Reviews

A compendium of pediatric diseases and management practices presented in a two-page format for quick reference by primary care physicians. Over 100 pediatricians contributed to the identification of clinically relevant material covering just about everything from common complaints such as earaches and crossed eyes to specific diseases such as anemia, leukemia, asthma, metabolic disorders, scarlet fever, and subdural hematoma. The volume also includes tables outlining a variety of specialized information including immunization recommendations, the distinguishing characteristics of pulmonary and cardiovascular syndromes, gynecological considerations, and toxicology materials.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary Younger, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This quick reference on pediatric complaints and diseases is a resource for differential diagnosis, exam findings, lab and radiology findings, treatment, and ICD-9 codes. This updates the 2005 publication.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a quick reference for a large number of pediatric problems and diseases. Considering the vast amount of information a general pediatrician needs to know, this is a worthy goal that the authors successfully achieve.
Audience: Residents and practitioners in general pediatrics are the intended audience.
Features: The book covers history and exam findings, lab and radiology findings, differential diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. It is very easy to navigate and information is presented in a concise format. The differential diagnoses are very thorough.
Assessment: This is a very useful starting point for general pediatrics. It provides most of the basic facts on a disease process in an easy to follow manner. I have the previous edition (fourth) in my office and use it on a weekly basis. I have not found the previous the previous edition to be out of date, so I am not sure that a new edition is warranted. However, a few minor organizational changes have been made in the fifth edition which make the book even easier to use.
