Handbook of Urological Diseases in Children
Ricardo Gonzales, Barbara M. Ludwikowski
This definitive manual provides a quick reference on pediatric urologic problems for medical students and physicians in training. Presented in two clearly outlined sections, part one introduces, in 12 chapters, the common forms of presentation of urological conditions in children, with emphasis on anamnesis, differential diagnosis and the appropriate use of diagnostic tools. Treatment modalities are also briefly discussed. Part two consists of 11 chapters that discuss the common pediatric urological conditions. The emphasis for part two is the provision of practical and up-to-date information in a standardized, easy-to-read format. There is extensive cross-referencing between parts one and two. Finally, an appendix presents practical information such as renal length, grading of reflux, etc.
