This standard text offers comprehensive, yet concise coverage of childhood infections, with direct and to-the-point options for their management and treatment. In this 11th Edition, classic clinical descriptions of the major childhood exanthems and other infections are combined with new descriptions of emerging and re-emerging international infections such as malaria and dengue. The book provides helpful tables, diagrams, charts, photographs, color plates as well as cross-referencing between chapters to help associate symptoms and speed diagnosis.
