This book revitalizes the importance of the history and physical examination as the foundation of clinical evaluation. It provides invaluable hints, aids and guidelines for effective physical diagnosis. Clinicians who value these basic skills should not be without it.

From the forward, by Basil J. Zitelli, M.D.

This is the second edition of a successful textbook which puts emphasis on the study and knowledge of normality in physical diagnosis, in order to better appreciate, describe, diagnose and treat the abnormal.

Clearly written and generously illustrated, it describes in practical step-by-step, head to-toe procedures, the diagnostic examination of the newborn, child and adolescent. It provides a novel approach to the recognition and description of physical findings.

The book is divided into 4 sections - Introduction to the Concept of Normality, Taking the History, Physical Examinations, and Specialised Examinations. It emphasises the importance of both subjective and objective observations, of distinguishing between the two, and of the use of exact measurements whenever possible.

The book is comprehensive and easy to use, the text flows easily and understandably, unusual or key words are defined, rare diseases, unusual syndromes and name-dropping are avoided wherever possible. In short, this new edition of Pediatric Physical Diagnosis is an enjoyable, invaluable reference for both the beginner and the experienced physician and for trainees specialising in pediatrics and neonatology.

Review:

The book is a treasure trove of accurately presented information about a skill that is essential to the success of any physician diagnosing and treating children. It is simple, readable, highly accurate, and offers extensive details on many aspects of an often neglected skill. The large number of pictures, graphics, and mnemonics are also helpful and should help students immensely. Experienced clinicians who depend on the history and physical examination will tell you to listen to the mother, the child, and the nurse (hear), examine (use your eyes and your touch), then make a diagnosis and confirm it by doing a few labs! This book certainly should help all aspiring pediatricians and primary care providers to accomplish that goal.

This one is recommended strongly as an excellent teaching tool and a resource for pediatricians, students, residents, and primary care physicians.

Purpose: This book emphasizes the concept that an accurate history and a thorough, comprehensive physical examination form the basis of diagnosis and management of pediatric illnesses. The highlight of the book is its precise, succinct presentation in an uncomplicated format. This update comes three decades after the first edition was published in 1980.

Audience: It is intended to help trainees (medical students and residents) learn these skills and to refresh and fine tune the skills of capable veterans. It also could serve as a tool for physician educators to teach the junior and the midlevel providers. I am a veteran by any measure and I found the book to be simple, accurate, refreshing, and easy to read. The authors certainly have achieved their goal of stressing the significance of history and physical examination in pediatric medicine and have done it elegantly.

Features: The book is intended for students, residents, and family practitioners, as well as other less experienced pediatric providers. The authors hope to get students ready, excited, and eager to elicit an accurate account of the reasons for the visit and gather enough information to help diagnose and manage the malady. Experienced clinicians should find the book a refreshing review that can confirm current practices or provide an update and review.

Assessment: This is an outstanding review of the art and science of the physical examination of children and adolescents and covers all aspects, from skin to the viscera, head to toe, and newborns to young adults. The coverage is based on organ systems, with the stress on defining the normal and then describing and pointing out the abnormal findings that lead one to the correct diagnosis, a practical approach. --Doody's Review - Rajasekharan Warrier, MD(Ochsner for Children)

Pediatric Physical Diagnosis by Balu H. Athreya MD is a very practically oriented book revitalising the importance of history and physical exam as the base for clinical evaluation. The simple language and illustrations go a long way in assisting a novice (and experienced clinician) to learn from the knowledge and experience of recognised experts in the field. This book with its refreshing and helpful emphasis on clinical skills will, I believe, have an important role in training future clinicians. --Dr Nutan Kamath, Professor Pediatrics, KMC Mangalore, Manipal University, India
