Advances in Pediatrics. Volume X

JAMA. 1958;168(13):1828. doi:10.1001/jama.1958.03000130094024

As part of a continuing series of comprehensive pediatric topics, this volume continues the excellent high standards, readability, and presentation of practical information. The subjects covered include psychological principles in pediatric practice, the pediatrician and the sick child, treatment of tuberculosis in childhood, convulsive disorders in infants and children, prevention of poliomyelitis by vaccination, staphylococcic infections in nurseries, muscular disorders of childhood, and the transfer of antibodies from mother to offspring. The detailed discussion on the pediatrician and the sick child should be of special value, and the general considerations on the practical application of the "art" of medicine should be useful to every practicing physician. This section should be of even greater value to the graduating medical student and house staff member. The total patient reactions to acute and chronic illness, along with management (including parent management), have never before been described in such a precise and all-encompassing manner.
