Children pose a particular chalenge to doctors and paediatricians as they often have difficulty in describing their particular symptoms and their parents' descriptions can be vague and confusing.
Offering a clear, practicla focus, Pathways in Paediatrics outlines clinical approaches to common paediatric problems, covering a total of 17 emergency and 19 outpatient symptoms, ranging from seizure and acute diarrhoea through to skin rash and abnormal puberty. The text is supported by concise flow diagrams and will be an invaluable resource for junior doctors in paediatrics and primary care, and undergraduate medical students specialising in paediatrics.
