DOODY'S BOOK REVIEW
REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION

Vanessa Carroll, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)

Description

This is a valuable atlas with an extensive number of quality images with concise descriptions and management recommendations for pediatric conditions categorized into 22 encompassing specialties.

Purpose

rare pediatric conditions through more than 1,000 quality images with brief descriptions and suggestions for management. Designed for quick and easy use, the images and descriptions are alphabetically organized under 22 specialty sections. While it is modeled after the American Academy of Pediatrics' Atlas of Pediatrics in the Tropics and Resource-Limited Settings, Spector and Gibson (2009), it stands alone for its quality and brevity.

Audience

This atlas can benefit health professionals at varied levels of training who care for children. The images, text, and management suggestions may assist everyone from medical students to house officers, midlevel providers, and busy practicing physicians. The information is clearly conveyed and easily accessible. Each of the 22 specialty sections has been edited by experienced Indian opinion leaders in their respective fields.

Features

The 37 section editors have provided quality images with brief discussions in areas such as neonatology, infectious diseases, neurology, cardiology, genetics, pediatric surgery, and radiology. The breadth of coverage, the high-yield information, and the concise format makes this a valued atlas.

Assessment

Zitelli and Davis' Atlas of Pediatric Diagnoses, 6th edition, Zitelli et al. (Elsevier, 2012), is used by pediatricians and considered the premier atlas by many. The IAP Color Atlas does not have the depth of the Zitelli, but it addresses similar topics in a very concise manner. It deserves a spot on the pediatric bookshelf.
