Symptom-Based Diagnosis in Pediatrics features 19 chapters, each devoted to a common pediatric complaint. Within each chapter, five to eight case presentations teach the diagnostic approach to the symptom. The case presentations follow a consistent outline of History, Physical Examination, and Course of Illness, and are followed by discussion of the Differential Diagnosis, Diagnosis Incidence and Epidemiology, Clinical Manifestations, Diagnostic Approach, and Treatment. Cases are illustrated with vibrant full-color photographs and include numerous tables comparing potential diagnoses.

Organized by symptoms--the way patients actually present More than 100 cases teach the diagnostic approach to a symptom Cases illustrate how the same complaint can have a variety of causes Full-color clinical photos and illustrations sharpen your visual diagnosis skills Valuable tables detail the most frequent causes of common symptoms
