Preface

The field of pediatric medicine encompasses a rapidly expanding volume of information. This book has been prepared by a diverse group of authors from a range of pediatric subspecialists to create a platform to review the recent advances quickly and efficiently. With authors from pediatric subspecialties, duplication of the information was reduced to a minimum by integrating the chapters effectively. The authors clearly explain etiology, pathophysiology, and management of commonly encountered pediatric disorders.

The book does not pretend to describe the all aspects of the management of the various problems discussed. Each contributor presented the scientific evidence and discussed the practice pathways to enhance effectiveness of readers in approaching commonly encountered medical problems in children. Concise information about the approach of pediatric subspecialists to common medical problems, that are frequently very complex, enhances the educational value of the book for everyone involved in the care of children.

It is my hope that, by presenting the breadth and depth of many of the typical problems encountered while caring for children in an evidence-based format, Recent Advances in Pediatric Medicine; Synopsis of Current General Pediatrics Practice will become a valuable asset for the pediatric practitioner, specialists, medical students, and others involved in the care of children.

A book like this is the result of the effort of many people. I am very grateful to my wife, Zerrin, for having gracefully accepted that many weekends were absorbed by the preparation of this book. Many thanks go to all authors trying the impossible and sparing time to write this book within their endless working schedule.
