The book beautifully blends the art and science of clinical examination of children. The book has been extensively revised, updated and expanded to handle children with tact and clinical skills and their parents and attendants with concern and compassion. The Chapter on Differential Diagnosis of Common Abnormal Physical Signs has been expanded and book can serve as an excellent manual to the practising pediatricians for differential diagnosis of common clinical disorders in children. A large number of additional photo-graphs, tables and boxes with key points and quotations have been included. It is one of the most comprehensive publications on pediatric clinical methods to serve the felt needs of graduate and postgraduate medical students, pediatric residents and pediatricians to rejuvenate the dwindling art of pediatrics.
