This is the only current, problem-based, top-to-bottom overview of pediatric surgery presented in twenty years. It features 65 clinical cases, each outlined and illustrated with photographs, x-rays and questions that focuses on the essentials of appropriate dignostic evaluation, differential diagnosis and surgical or medical management. Four strong authors give a strong consistent style to the text and offers CME credits through Stanford's Lucille Salter Packard's Children's Hospital.
