This unique book is all about the art of clinical analysis. It comprises of 80 actual cases as they presented with their varied symptom complexes, encompassing a wide clinical spectrum in different subspecialties.

To begin with, it briefly discusses the basic concepts of symptoms and signs pertaining to a system, before proceeding with representative cases, which are listed according to the presenting symptoms. It describes how a sequential analysis of every point in the history, clinical examination and investigations leads to the correct diagnosis.

While reading through the cases, the keywords are highlighted, facilitating a quick revision. Each case ends with key messages that convey critical concepts of clinical medicine. Thus, this book is different and one of its kind in the sense that it does not intend to teach pediatrics at all; it purely stimulates the reader to develop a fine sense of rational thinking that facilitates clinical diagnosis in the field of pediatrics, through a self-learning, totally case-based format.

Extremely interesting for clinicians, physicians, pediatricians, hematologists, nephrologists, hepatologists, rheumatologists, cardiologists, endocrinologists, neurologists, etc. as well as medical students, teachers and practitioners.

Target Audience

This book is ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate medical students, practicing pediatricians, teaching faculty in the field of pediatrics, and family physicians who also deal with children.
