Book Description:

This book features 121 case studies intended to provide an approach to the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric infectious diseases. Each brief case scenario, designed to challenge the reader to work out the answer, is followed by a discussion of the case, supplemented with tables and photographs. Discussions focus on principles of management, as opposed to details, and place emphasis on determining risk factors and on clinical evaluation, not on performing non-discriminating laboratory tests.

About the Author:

Frank E. Berkowitz was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. He obtained his medical degree from the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, in 1972, where he later trained in pediatrics and microbiology. After pursuing further studies in pediatric infectious diseases and epidemiology at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, he practiced pediatrics for several years in South Africa and later in Atlanta, where he studied epidemiology at Emory University. He has published and lectured on a wide variety of infectious diseases and has received several teaching awards. Dr Berkowitz currently practices general pediatrics and infectious diseases in Atlanta, where he is Professor of Pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine.
