by Suraj Gupte

The present volume “Recent Advances in Pediatrics (Special Volume 26): Infectious Diseases I” presents 26 peer-reviewed state-of-the-art chapters contributed by as many as 26 experts drawn from India and abroad. This volume is divided into seven parts. Part I is a spotlight on influenza which afflicted the world in 2009–10 as a pandemic and continues to be around globally, including India, year after year as seasonal influenza. The issues discussed in the seven chapters devoted to influenza include antiviral influenza drugs, complementary and alternative medicine, influenza vaccines and influenza future perspectives and directions. In the chapters of the remaining six parts, a plethora of topical issues such as vector-borne viral infections (Ebola virus disease, dengue, chikungunya, Japanese encephalitis), bacterial infectious diseases (typhoid, rickettsial infections, leptospirosis), gastrointestinal infections (diarrhea, cholera, abdominal tuberculosis), preventive pediatrics (adverse events after immunization, immunization in India), pediatric therapeutics (rational antimicrobial therapy, cerebral malaria) and miscellaneous issues (atypical pneumonia, cerebral malaria, pediatric tuberculosis) are discussed. Furthermore, all chapters are reader-friendly, easy-to-understand and amply supported by highlighted illustrations, boxes, tables, algorithms and flow charts in order to drive home the important points effectively. Each chapter ends up with “Summary and Conclusion”, “Key Learning Points” and References.
