This edition highlights extensive revision in most chapters to effectively meet the contemporary needs of the undergraduate and postgraduate medical and nursing students, and practising pediatricians as well. Chapters on growth and development have been rewritten with inclusion of fresh illustrations and WHO growth norms; chapters on nutrition and neonatology have been completely revised with emphasis on practical and evidence-based management of common conditions; chapter on infections has also been rewritten keeping in view their relevance in practice; and chapters on hematology, endocrines, nervous system and renal disorders have been thoroughly updated and reorganised. New chapter-sections on hypertension, interventional cardiology, newer vaccines, poisonings and accidents, national and WHO guidelines on management of common conditions and IMNCI have been incorporated. The multiple diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms are expected to serve as a useful educational resource. Fresh chapters on skin and ocular disorders, practical procedures and the rights of children provide a comprehensive review on issues pertaining to the care of children.
