In this edition, we have made further strides to attain the enhanced excellence not only for the undergraduates but also for the benefit of postgraduates, residents, practitioners and teachers. The goal is to provide a down-to-earth blend of time-honored concepts along with the phenomenal explosion of knowledge in modern pediatrics with special emphasis on the needs in the Indian subcontinent.
Each and every chapter stands updated with significant revisions. A new section on "Emergencies and Intensive Care", many fresh illustrations (clinical photographs, diagrams, and algorithms/flowcharts), boxes and tables are added. An enlarged index shall further facilitate easy retrieval of information.
