Review:

"Now in its 6th (30th anniversary) edition, Infectious Diseases of the Fetus and Newborn Infant remains the definitive textbook in this field and an indispensable resource for anyone caring for women, fetuese and newborn infants.(...)
The chapters remain thorough, well-referenced, and largely easy-to-read, and they consist of authoritative reviews of topics by leaders in the areas covered. All chapters have been updated with new information that has become available since the previous edition was published in 2001.(...)
Infectious Diseases of the Fetus and Newborn Infant continues to be, in this improved edition, the authorative reference in the field. It should be a primary source of practical, as well as detailed, information for all of those who care for these patients." -- CID 2006:42 (1April)
