This new volume brings together up-to-date authoritative information on seven subjects related to pediatrics. The emphasis in this volume is given to disorders of the newborn. The topics include preventive prenatal pediatrics; pulmonary pathology, hemolytic disease, and intestinal obstruction of the newborn; megaloblastic anemia of infancy; the lipoidoses; and lymphosarcoma in childhood. The detailed discussion of each of the subjects is prepared by a leading authority. Extensive bibliographic references are given. The intention is not to present new material but to sum up the present knowledge in certain fields in which rapid strides have been made in the past few years. The current volume also contains a listing of the subjects covered in each of the preceding volumes. A year-byyear collection of these volumes provides the pediatrician or general practitioner with complete up-to-date information on a variety of important subjects.
