Key Features
This book is a unique compendium of update and essential information on all range of pediatric topics with emphasis on pediatric problems of developing countries.

It is written in a concise, easy-to-read format and is intended for use by pediatric residents, senior medical undergraduates, postgraduates in pediatrics, practicing pediatricians and physicians.

While working as a pediatrician for more than 25 years, the author fascinated by the various types of pediatric cases and problems at home and abroad, which he always desired to record.

During his service of 20 years in Dhaka Shishu Hospital, in addition to his clinical workload, he was also preoccupied with administrative works even after office hours, particularly with administrative jobs of director of hospital and academic director of Bangladesh Institute of Child Health for significant part of his service in that institute.

After joining United Hospital Ltd in 2009, administrative work dropped significantly which provided him with ample opportunity and scope to write the book.

Unique combination of his wide pediatric experience in resource-poor developing countries like Bangladesh (Dhaka Shishu Hospital, a government-aided autonomous hospital and United Hospital Ltd, a corporate tertiary care private hospital) in relatively resource-rich Middle East countries and in industrialized countries like UK helped him in writing the book in global perspective.

The book contains almost all the topics of pediatrics with special emphasis on child health and pediatric problems.

For instance, significant emphasis has been given on subjects like malnutrition, diarrheal diseases, pneumonia, breastfeeding, infectious diseases like tuberculosis, typhoid, dengue, malaria, neonatal problems like preterm low birthweight baby, neonatal sepsis, birth asphyxia, community pediatrics including integrated management of childhood illness (IMCI).

The book has been enriched with colorful attractive illustrations, which include clinical photographs, drawings, sketches to complement clinical understanding.

A total of 1,042 such clinical illustrations have been included taken from his personal collection, Internet and other sources which are unique of the book.

Clinical methodology particularly clinical examination of nervous system, cardiovascular system and neonatal examination (where postgraduates are frequently puzzled to perform) are discussed with illustrations which the author believes will help postgraduates as well as senior undergraduates to perform well at clinical part of professional examinations.

The book contains drug therapy chapter containing names of drugs frequently used in pediatric practice with their generic names, trade names, doses and indications of use in attractive easy-to-find way in order to facilitate drug treatment in hospital setting and writing prescription by practitioners at their private chamber and at community-level practice.
