4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is a nearly exhaustive compilation of over 4,500 pediatric syndromes and their impact on perioperative management....I have not come across a book that covers this subject as completely and makes referencing as easy as this one does. It is truly an essential text for those providing operative care to children who have syndromic diseases."--Doody's Review Service
