Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"This book is of the highest quality and justifies the replacement of the previous edition. The fast-developing field of infectious diseases requires regular reevaluation, and timely updates of both the AAP Red Book and this companion atlas are crucial. There is simply no other book like it in the field, and it is invaluable to pediatric practitioners."

-- Madan Kumar, D.O. (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine) Doody's Review - previous edtion

"This is a practical compilation of high-resolution, clinically relevant illustrations with concise summaries of common and atypical pediatric infections. It is suitable for students, residents, and fellows wishing to familiarize themselves with visual findings of infectious diseases and for pediatric and family physicians who often need a quick review while in their busy practice. Physician assistants and nurse practitioners who care for children will find this guide helpful to their practice as well."

-- Shirley Delair, MD MPH (Children's Hospital & Medical Center) Doody's Review - previous edition

"The visual representations of common and atypical clinical manifestations of infectious diseases are accompanied by diagnostic information not contained in the current Red Book. This pediatric infectious disease atlas, designed as a companion to the American Academy of Pediatrics' 2012 Red Book, is intended to be a study guide for students, residents, and practitioners."

-- Russell Steele, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation) Doody's Review - previous edition

"Considered by many the quintessential resource and reference for clinical practice."

-- Emerging Infectious Diseases


This atlas is ideal not just for students who seek visual learning tools, but also for residents and fellows who are involved in the care of children. It allows them to view common and atypical findings that may no longer be seen due to the advances of preventive medicine. Practicing clinicians in inpatient and outpatient pediatric settings will find this a useful resource that can help their management of infections in children.
