The third edition of Pediatric AIDS, edited by Drs Pizzo and Wilfert, is a fine example of how an excellent reference can be kept up to date, even in a rapidly changing field. The latest edition has a tremendous amount of new information and encompasses every area of interest, from the basic molecular biology and immunopathology of HIV to the clinical problems and social issues of infected patients. It includes all the exciting new advances, such as the decrease in vertical transmission and new markers of disease progression but highlights the areas where much still needs to be done, particularly in the developing world. I, again, congratulate the editors on a superb and timely update!
