"In Focus Paediatrics and Neonatology" is aimed at all medical and health science students who require an introductory, low cost and highly illustrated guide to these two related specialities. The material is presented in double page spreads. The left-hand page has a synoptic and highly structured text (normally under the following headings: incidence; clinical features; differential diagnosis; management; prognosis). The right-hand page has a selection of four to six clinical photographs. "Paediatrics and Neonatology In Focus" is a convenient pocket size, and therefore ideal for quick preparation before ward rounds. Each volume also includes self-assessment material, which is extremely helpful for preparation for examinations. Because of shorter time spent in hospital by patients, and because of the decrease in time allocated to paeds in many medical curricula, students are less likely to be able to see the full range of problems associated with childhood diseases and problems of the neonate - this book will help supply that deficit.
