The revised and updated 2nd Edition of this highly acclaimed text approaches diagnosis and treatment the way clinicians do-by symptom rather than disease entity. It combines clinical experience and evidence-based strategies to guide clinicians through differential diagnoses and then to a specific diagnosis, then to appropriate therapy for common pediatric aliments. It's the next best thing to attending oral teaching rounds! A user-friendly, well-tabulated, and illustrated format assists the reader in identifying the many disease states causing a common chief complaint.
