Review
Doody's : "The book has 21 chapters devoted to major fields in pediatrics, with new chapters on adolescence, developmental and behavioral pediatrics, rheumatology, oncology, neurology, and ophthalmology. In addition, chapters on pediatric health supervision and ethics are provided. The chapters are well written, for the most part, with the proper amount of information so that reading is not laborious. The tables and algorithms are plentiful and are a key feature of this book. The figures are helpful and complement the text very well." "Several books fill the niche between those dealing with the very basics of pediatrics and large reference books. These books are useful for those doing general reading about topics, but inadequate for direct patient care. Students who use this book will be well prepared for end-of-rotation...

From The New England Journal of Medicine, April 13, 2000
Rheumatic Diseases and the Environment reviews a number of topics with a common theme: the effect of environmental agents on the development of rheumatic disease. Most rheumatic disorders are thought to result from interactions between genetic and environmental factors, but evidence of the roles of specific environmental agents is scarce for most diseases. In this book, the term "environment" is used broadly to include a number of chemicals, drugs, and lifestyle factors, as well as emotional and physical distress, but not infectious agents or microbial products. Among the topics covered are fibrosing disorders such as the toxic oil syndrome, drug-induced autoimmunity, silicone-related disorders, diseases related to lifestyle, and occupational musculoskeletal disorders. The...
