The 6th edition of Jolly’s disease of children has been fully updated to present a comprehensive guide to the complete field of pediatrics. The renowned author and editor team from the UK and the USA, provide practical advice on the diagnosis, investigation techniques and treatment of a wide range of childhood disorders, both surgical and non surgical, including haematological, endocrine, urinary and ophthalmological. Under the pen of Hugh Jolly, Diseases of Children became the classic text to combine caring for the child with curing the disorder. In the fifth edition Malcolm Levene added skills in neonatology, and his assumption of overall responsibility for Jolly’s Diseases of Children is reflected in further change. This remains a book which focuses primarily on childhood disease and its treatment but which retains the compassionate touch essential to the care of sick children.
