The handbook's team of specialist contributors and editors have successfully condensed many years of clinicalexperience into a pocket-sized compendium of clinical problems and treatment options. Taking a child-centred approach to the subject, the authors have provided comprehensive coverage of areas such as neonatology, surgery, genetics and congenital malformations, and child protection in a user-friendlyand succinct style.
