This reference work has been designed to provide undergraduate and postgraduate students involved in child care with a logical approach to interpreting symptoms, rather than a formal review of disease entitities. Each section, chosen for its importance in clinical paediatrics, presents the important physiological principles underlying symptoms and discusses those areas which are often confused by students. Clinical features are then analyzed to formulate an appropriate differential diagnosis and investigations are suggested to help establish a final diagnosis. A case history, with relevant questions, is presented at the end of each chapter and the process of diagnosis for each case is outlined. These problems should be useful to examination candidates and others who are reading to improve their understanding of each topic.

It covers a lot of ground: being symptoms based, chapter titles range from the vague...to the more specific. What I like is that at the end of each chapter there is a real-life clinical case which is posed as a PBL-like scenario with questions and discussions. It gives you a chance to go through the process of coming up with the possible differentials and you can check if you're right. It contains a lot of information...it is worth a read.
