Despite the advent of powerful technological advances, the cornerstone of patient care remains the history and physical examination. In this era of lab tests and, in a 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 includes more information on differential diagnosis, and has a new fresh look.show more

Review quote

"This remains an excellent source of pediatric information, particularly as it relaates to physical examination skills, history taking, and differential diagnosis. It has been an important part of pediatric literature since the 1950s and this edition has been updated significantly with new, excellent illustrations. This handbook should be a part of every pediatrician's library, and carried in the pockets of students, residents, and young physicians."--Doody'sshow more
