Signs and Symptoms in Pediatrics—Ready Reckoner

by Baldev Prajapati

The book “Signs and Symptoms in Pediatrics—Ready Reckoner” presents a discussion of various symptoms and signs in a unique format that includes the basics as well as various causes of each sign/symptom, ranging from common to not-so-uncommon issues met in routine practice. The book has been written in a simplified manner. It covers 102 common pediatric signs and symptoms. Each sign and symptom is elaborated methodologically. It starts with a short introduction which includes the meaning of sign and symptom, prevalence in practice, common points to be covered during collecting information from parents, analysis of data and probable etiology. Common causes for each sign and symptom are enlisted. They are arranged in the sequence of seeing on the practice to highlight their clinical importance and not grouped as system wise. The most common causes are kept first, then less common and rare ones at the last. Very rare causes are not included in the list to maintain the interest of the reader and to avoid undue length of the manuscript. Plenty of tables and clinical photographs are included for easy retrieval of information and good visual impression. Most of clinical photographs are of our own patients. The book is addressed primarily to undergraduate, MD and DNB students, but it will also be a ready-reckoner for quick and accurate diagnosis for the practicing pediatricians.
