The 4th edition of this book is a specialized reference source that seeks to provide paediatricians with an up-to-date review of the diseases, diagnosis and treatment of the sick child in the tropics. Outside influences are also taken into consideration, such as environment and culture. This edition tries to achieve the essential preventative-curative community blend. Each section attempts a balance between clinical and applied paediatrics, between curative and preventative care, and between disease in the individual child and in the community. It also describes the presentation and management of all common conditions relevant to the practice of primary and preventative health care of the child in the community. An ELBS/LPBB edition is available.
