This practical handbook uses a symptom-based approach to paediatric differential diagnosis. For each symptom, the book describes its epidemiology, the physiological principles underlying the symptom, history, examination, and investigation, and features a summary management box and a case study. The 2nd Edition features a much more extensive collection of symptoms―nearly twice as many as the first edition. It also discusses the community aspects of paediatric conditions. A new 2-color format and many new illustrations enhance the text.

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.
