Description

Pediatric Complaints and Diagnostic Dilemmas: A Case-Based Approach contains 119 cases in 20 chapters that cover a common chief complaint. Each chapter opens with a definition of the complaint, moves to differential diagnosis with a table on the most frequent causes, and reviews the important questions in the history.

Case presentations cover the history of present illness, past medical history, the physical exam, diagnostic studies, and the development of the complaint over time.
