Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"This book is a must-have for any practitioner in pediatric care. It thoughtfully approaches the diagnosis and management of pediatric infectious disease. The book is clearly written and easily accessible to providers at all levels of experience. The numerous color pictures, charts, and pathways will help readers understand all aspects of each disease. This book exemplifies the knowledge and experience of Dr. Tan."

-- Poj Lysouvakon, MD (Comer Children's Hospital) Doody's Review

"This book is of the highest quality and justifies the replacement of the previous edition. The fast-developing field of infectious diseases requires regular reevaluation, and timely updates of both the AAP Red Book and this companion atlas are crucial. There is simply no other book like it in the field, and it is invaluable to pediatric practitioners."

-- Madan Kumar, D.O. (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine) Doody's Review - previous edtion


This atlas is ideal not just for students who seek visual learning tools, but also for residents and fellows who are involved in the care of children. It allows them to view common and atypical findings that may no longer be seen due to the advances of preventive medicine. Practicing clinicians in inpatient and outpatient pediatric settings will find this a useful resource that can help their management of infections in children.
