Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"This is an excellent reference for antimicrobial therapy. The new rating system for strength of recommendation and level of supporting evidence that is new to this edition is very useful and assists in the decision-making process in the clinical setting."

-- Judy Moreau, MD (Ochsner for Children) Doody's Review - a previous edition

"With an ever-increasing amount of literature becoming available for the treatment of pediatric infectious diseases, frequent updates of resources like this are necessary to keep providers informed about the most appropriate treatment."

-- Patricia Marshik, Pharm.D (University of New Mexico College of Pharmacy) Doody's Review - prior edition


Although written for practitioners in any specialty who may encounter patients with infectious diseases, the book is especially helpful for general pediatricians who, on a daily basis, care for children with infectious diseases.
