Illustrated Textbook of Paediatrics by tom Lissauer


A concise, colourfully illustrated and highly informative textbook of paediatrics. Written primarily for medical students for their course in clinical paediatrics (6-10 weeks in duration in the UK and worldwide), the book has found a wider audience among nurses, trainee paediatricians preparing for the MRCPCH, and general practitioners preparing for the DCH. Throughout, there is an emphasis on the core fundamentals of paediatrics practice throughout the world, which has contributed to its success in Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

Why is the book so appealing? There are three main reasons: (1) the combined systems/symptoms approach, which is particularly suited to the study of children's illnesses; (2) the amount of detail covered in a very succinct style, making it appropriate for a wide range of students; and (3) the appealing way in which it is written and presented.

The following quotes from student/trainee reviewers explain these reasons even more clearly.

1. The book combines a traditional, systems-based approach with a symptoms-based approach, which is particularly appropriate to paediatrics.
