9780443071003: Tutorials in Paediatric Differential Diagnosis, 2e

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.

  • Uses a symptom-based approach to diagnosing paediatric conditions, mirroring the medical school curriculum and postgraduate examinations.
  • Approaches diagnosis step by step, reviewing epidemiology, the underlying physiology, history, examination, and investigation.
  • Includes a summary management box and a case study for each topic.

  • Provides expert commentary on specialist topics.
  • Features a new, two-color layout and many new illustrations.
  • Highlights the community aspects of paediatric diseases.
With 5 additional contributing experts.

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.
