This innovative text, modelled on the current RCPCH syllabus for
paediatric training, provides all the information that the senior house
officer and specialist registrar in paediatrics will need during
training and when preparing for the MRCPCH examination. A series of
chapters discussing general principles in paediatric medicine is
followed by a section covering the problems associated with the major
body systems. Each chapter within this latter section is divided into
three elements. Element A covers the background basic science to the
particular problems being discussed in the chapter, including basic
embryology and anatomy, biology and physiology. A description of the
techniques involved in investigation where these will be critical to the
diagnoses that follow is also included here; Element B presents the
core system problems for the chapter. Tables are provided to summarise
the different causes, classifications and differential diagnoses,
clinical features, key investigations, therapeutic options and outcomes.
Concise supporting text provides more detailed information where
appropriate.  Selected short case histories are also included to
highlight the key issues covered in the chapter. Element C is a concise
bibliography, incorporating a short series of key primary papers and
review articles and suggestions for further reading. Subjects covered
under general principles include developmental paediatrics, behavioural
issues and learning difficulties, community paediatrics and clinical
pharmacology. Clinical chapters include the respiratory, cardiovascular,
endocrine and all other body systems. Haematology, oncology,
psychiatry, surgical problems and tropical paediatric medicine are also
covered here. All chapters contain up-to-date and appropriate
information written by practising paediatricians who are each
acknowledged specialists in their own field. This textbook will fast
become an indispensable guide to the specialty for all trainee
paediatricians in preparation for the MRCPCH examination and beyond.
Review
 The problem based approach of the book presents the reader with a
slightly different perspective from that found in the traditional system
based textbook. Junior doctors deal with and learn from dealing with
children with problems - so this textbook with its alternative approach
will be a useful additional source of advice and help to many starting
off their careers in paediatrics. I would strongly recommend this text
to postgraduate doctors coming to paediatrics (FY1 & 2) and to those
starting in their training posts and studying for the MRCPCH. --
