Now fully revised and updated with the latest guidelines, this new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Paediatrics is an easy-to-use and compact guide to all aspects of acute and chronic paediatrics. The team of specialist contributors and editors have successfully condensed many years of clinical experience into a pocket-sized compendium of clinical problems and treatment options. Taking a child-centred approach to the subject, the book provides comprehensive coverageof areas such as neonatology, surgery, genetics and congenital malformations, along with the treatment of children in the community, the psychological effects of illness on the child and family, child safeguarding, and ethical and legal issues, all in a user-friendly and succinct style.

All chaptershave been updated for this new edition, which now includes a new chapter comprehensively covering allergies, with new dedicated chapters on audiology, ophthalmology, and rheumatology. Child safeguarding has been thoroughly revised in line with latest guidance, with a new topic on manslaughter by gross negligence. The practical advice and experience contained within this handbook will be invaluable to all those involved in the care of the younger patient.

Review from previous edition Coming from the impressive pedigree of the Oxford Handbook series, I was very much looking forward to reviewing this book. I certainly was not disappointed as it is a superb review of the subject and can be worth its weight in gold.
