Staying true to the unique, problem-oriented approach of Dr. Hugh Moffet�s previous editions, the fifth edition of�Moffet�s Pediatric Infectious Diseases�walks the reader step by step through diagnosis and management using a signs and symptoms approach. This patient-oriented structure leads to a logical development of a differential diagnosis and evaluation and treatment plan, offering clear steps to confirm the diagnosis and provide appropriate therapy.
- A patient-focused, problem-oriented approach helps you develop the thought process that leads to more accurate diagnoses and better patient care � no matter how complex the patient presentation.
- Greatly revised content throughout, including new medications, new names of known pathogens, new practice guidelines, and extensive revisions to chapters on urinary syndromes, hepatitis syndromes, and HIV infection and AIDS.
- Newly streamlined format features the most notable suggested readings, more boxes and tables, new clinical pearls, and new key points that summarize must-know information in each chapter.
- New two-color design and updated and expanded illustrations bring the text visually up to date and facilitate faster and easier mastery of the material.
