IAP Textbook of Pediatrics

by A Parthasarathy, MKC Nair, Rohit Agrawal, TU Sukumaran, PSN Menon, Piyush Gupta

This book, IAP Textbook of Pediatrics, deals with various issues related to pediatrics. The recent decades have witnessed rapid strides in medicine and technological advances in biological sciences. The specialty of pediatrics has made substantial advances in preventive and therapeutic care. New vistas for care of children have been opened and many fresh thrust areas requiring our immediate or continued attention to decrease both morbidity and mortality have been delineated. These have provided fresh impetus to revise knowledge, harvest new information and thus continue the process of learning. The main focus of the new edition has now shifted to practicing pediatricians as against the original concept of undergraduates. The book represents a substantial revision and reorganization of the text based on a complete review of the field of pediatrics. A major change in this edition is the concerted effort to condense the contents of the Fifth Edition in a single volume instead of the 1,565 pages of the fourth edition in two volumes.
