This book demonstrates clearly how to perform a clinical examination in the infant or child who has a surgical condition. Most textbooks of pediatric surgery focus on the pathological classification and overall management of disease, rather than the practical details of how a diagnosis is made. Yet, in clinical practice, experienced physicians and surgeons usually use a problem-oriented approach to clinical diagnosis. Surprisingly, this is rarely taught to students. The authors attempt to redress this imbalance by providing a clinical approach to the patient which can be learned with a minimum of factual information. The book should therefore remain useful to the practitioner throughout his or her medical career. It includes detailed coverage of the usual presentations of common diseases, but does not attempt to cover all aspects of the presentations of uncommon diseases unless their recognition is important for the well-being or survival of the child. Generally illustrated, this is a book for all who are learning the art of pediatric surgical diagnosis.

My Review

This book is good. It is a very good companion in wards. After reading this book i am much confident in examining children of any age. The book covers the examination very well, it has differential diagnosis and diagrams and important points at end. At certain places it also lists the treatment for that condition.
