Handbook of Pediatric Physical and Clinical Diagnosis

Eighth Edition

Lewis A Barness and Enid Gilbert-Barness

Despite the advent of powerful technological advances, the cornerstone of patient care remains the history and phsycial examination. In this era of lab tests and, in an educational system dominated by 'adult medicine', the special approach to the unique examination of infants and children is often lost. In the Handbook of Pediatric Physical Diagnosis, the highly respected pediatrician Lewis Barness, and noted pediatrician and pathologist Enid Gilbert-Barness present clear descriptions and guidelines for the examination of the pediatric patient in an objective, analytical, and humanistic manner. With concise, clearly written text covering both common and difficult diagnoses, and aided by a wealth of tables, charts, and illustrations, this new edition will include more information on differential diagnosis, and it will be given a new, fresh look with newly drawn charts and illustrations.
