by A Parthasarathy, Rohit Agrawal, Vijay N Yewale, Jaydeep Choudhury, Ritabrata Kundu, Digant D Shastri, Abhay K Shah, Kheya Ghosh Uttam

This book, Textbook of Pediatric Infectious Disease, deals with pediatric infections. Infectious diseases account for major bulk of pediatric patients encountered in our daily practice. This book includes the common infections we face in our country including the tropical infectious diseases. Emphasis has been given to include those infections which are re-emerging causing considerable mortality and morbidity. It has been designed to be useful to both students and practicing pediatricians. The book provides an outline about the mechanism of bacterial infection and drug resistance with precautions to be taken both in hospital and office practice to prevent infection. A section has been devoted to basic investigation for the diagnosis of infectious diseases. General topics like infections without focus and those associated with rashes have been included. Besides individual infectious diseases, we have also taken care to include healthcare associated infections and infections in immunocompromised. A section has also been devoted to vaccines, which play a very important role in the prevention of infection. The guidelines on vaccine storage and handling will be of help in office practice. Immunization, in all its aspects particularly in immunocompromised children, has been well depicted in this book. Future vaccines in this book give an idea about the research activities, which are currently in progress.
