Recent Advances in Pediatrics—27: Hot Topics

by Shamma-Bakshi Gupte, Manu Gupte, Suraj Gupte

The 27th volume of the international series, Recent Advances in Pediatrics (Hot Topics), focuses on the contemporary concepts, concerns, and controversies with emphasis on new and evolving concepts in child health with special reference to the Indian subcontinent. This book consists of 9 parts, which are further divided into 33 chapters. Part 1 is an in-depth spotlight on the important neonatal issues. All the 8 chapters are eminently clinical oriented. An offbeat chapter, End-of-Life Care in Non-salvageable Newborns, should be of special interest to those working in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Part 2 focuses on such pediatric nephrology problems as nutrition in acute kidney injury, emergencies in acute kidney injury, acute glomerulonephritis, hemolytic uremic syndrome, and massive hematuria. Part 3 incorporates a thought-provoking chapter on Internet Addiction. Another chapter on hysterical conversion reactions highlights the intricacies of this important problem. Part 4 on pediatric gastroenterology carries excellent and well-illustrated chapters, namely chronic diarrhea, and severe constipation. Part 5 on infectious diseases includes the management of urinary tract infection, invasive fungal infections, and childhood pneumonias. Part 6 on pediatric nutrition incorporates such important topics as nutrition in a surgical child, diabetes, and cystic fibrosis. Part 7 on adolescence provides brilliant chapters on emotional problems as well as nutrition and nutritional problems of adolescents. Part 8 includes such miscellaneous issues as diabetic ketoacidosis, integrated management of neonatal and childhood illness (IMNCI), balance disorders and dizziness. Part 9 is a spotlight on the two emerging entities, i.e., COVID-19 and human monkeypox. Besides an update on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a chapter focuses on the psychological and psychiatric impacts of the illness on children and adolescents. The contents of this book are stimulating, mature and, at places, provocative for encouraging further discussion, research and innovation.
