An Atlas of Neonatology

by ML Kulkarni

The book An Atlas of Neonatology covers the entire spectrum of neonatal disease. Neonatology is a speciality with a large visual content in it. The pictures in an atlas hardly need updating. In an atlas, a blend of ‘believing beauty of a picture’ and authentic account of the text’ give it a unique place in educational tools. It is the general tendency of an average student to skip ‘reading of pictures and tables’. In this atlas, the very name invites or may even compel the student to read the picture. Some topics like congenital malformation, dysmorphic syndromes, birth injuries, normal variants in newborn, physical characters of preterm, and small for date babies are largely visual. Whereas, topics like neonatal sepsis, congenital heart diseases, etc. have less visual content. To overcome this problem in this book incorporated approximate 1100 color photographs, few line diagrams, flow charts, and tables to emphasize the content. More than one photograph of the same condition (of course from different patients) is given in chapters on congenital malformations and genetic syndromes to help the reader to develop better mental picture.
