' ... a very useful, small, reference book for paediatricians in any part of the world requiring a problem-based approach to diagnosis.' Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology

'This book is very well laid out, the writing appealing and the pictures and graphs are informative ... Without limitation it can be recommended to physicians who only occasionally treat children with tropical diseases.' (Translation from German)Clinical Paediatrics

'It is a very useful small reference book for paediatricians in any part of the world requiring a problem-based approach to diagnosis.' Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

'This very practical book is written by tropical medicine experts practicing in some of the poorest nations of the world ... a joy to read.' Cambridge Medicine

'At long last a text of pediatric problems as experience by health care professional ... The text is well illustrated with good quality photographs ... I think this book is one which can be used as a manual of paediatrics in developing countries and as such is well named and presented.' Mark Paterson, Topical Doctor

Book Description

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Paul Davies on March 6, 2001
Format: Hardcover
This is an important book. It belongs on the core list of textbooks at medicals schools in the tropics. The author, who is a white African himself, and who actually went to medical school in Africa, clearly and simply sets out practical guidelines for the management of diseases that the medical officer sees everyday; diseases which in the West would be managed by a team in ICU. A must for the student as well as for those going to do a stint where diseases of poverty abound. It will not be long before the student asks "Where is my Seear?".
