Special Order - Subject to Availability


This book is a guide to diagnosis of illness in children. It does not cover treatment and management, but instead lists the presenting features that occur in children and offers possible diagnosis. Patients approach the doctor with symptoms. Therefore a book organized by symptoms is of enormous use to the student doctor and family practitioner. Of course, symptoms alone can only suggest a list of possible diagnosis and the doctor must make any necessary further investigations in order to refine the diagnosis and arrive at the most likely condition. This book also provides a clear guide showing how to conduct the process of further investigation. Symptoms are arranged according to anatomical region and the book gives most emphasis to the more common likely diagnosis, while also listing the rarer disorders. It is written by a senior pediatrician with a wealth of clinical experience.
