First, a word of caution: "pathologie" here means "disease" or "disorder" and "enfant" means "child" rather than "infant". Nonetheless, this book presents a lot of anatomical pathology and covers a fair amount of perinatal and infantile territory. This elegant volume, clearly printed on good paper and neatly presented in a sturdy, flexible binding, covers its subject from alpha to omega in 552 pages and 220 figures. The 18 chapters cover the following topics: radiological anatomy; physiology; semiology; techniques of examination; upper-airway disorders; malformations of the tracheobronchial tree, lungs (with related digestive tract anomalies), mediastinum, thorax, vertebrae, diaphragm, and pulmonary vessels; diseases of the bronchi and lung (including collagenoses and storage diseases); allergy; vascular pathology; the lung in generalized disorders (leukemia, immunopathies, etc); diseases of the mediastinum; diseases of the pleura; neonatal respiratory distress; technical information on pleural puncture; tracheal intubation; tracheotomy, etc. The book also has a very complete index.
