Editorial Reviews


"This is a comprehensive review of all pediatric diseases divided into chapters related to systems such as the kidneys, circulatory system and respiratory system, etc. The book has already had a major focus on cardiovascular disease and that remains one of the book's strengths. It is well indexed and is easy to read. This book remains one of the giants in pediatric information with outstanding authors and excellent text. It should be a part of every pediatric library. This new edition has added new high standards particularly in the areas of imaging and additional biologic information which has become available since the previous edition." "4 Stars!" (Doody's 2002-12-20)

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By A pediatrician on August 10, 2005
Format: Hardcover
I referred to this book frequently throughout my pediatric residency training and invariably came away with an in-depth understanding of the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and evidence-based treatment of a wide breadth of pediatric problems-- I wish I had time to read the whole thing! I consult Nelson's Pediatrics often as well but usually find that Rudolph's provides more complete information on etiology and more up-to-date treatment recommendations. Rudolph's is generally more thorough than Nelson's. My only unfavorable comment on Rudolph's is that the index is not as extensive as Nelson's so that one has to search somewhat longer for the relevant section. Still, I think Rudolph's Pediatrics is an essential reference for all pediatric residents and practitioners.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Flying Saucer on September 25, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Big, heavy, not many diagrams or photos. Index not detailed. Difficult to read because has shiny/glossy paper and shiny black print, so the light reflects off the paper. Sorry. Don't buy it, don't use it. Stick with Nelson's. As to what the other reviewer said about the treatment strategies in this book. Honestly...Don't read the big texts for therapeutics. THese texts take years to print and edit, invariably sometimes the therapy is outdated or there is a newer therapy. That's what journals and up to date and emedicine are for. Read the texts for the physiologic purposes, differentials, overview. But for therapeutic guidelines, use more recent sources.
