Readers will find that significant changes have been made in this new, third edition of General Principles of Children's Orthopaedic Disease, edited by Michael Benson, John Fixsen, Malcolm Macnicol, and Klaus Parsch. The book achieves the goal of providing a concise description of the spectrum of pediatric orthopedic disease that readers in residency training will find useful in preparing for examinations and that others will find useful as a review or reference. Written largely by pediatric orthopedists and specialists from around the world outside of the United States, it provides US readers with a slightly different perspective on some diseases less frequently encountered in the United States, such as tuberculosis and tropical medicine, and it offers an international view on diagnosis and management of pediatric orthopedic disease.
