    This innovative text, modelled on the current RCPCH syllabus for paediatric training, provides all the information that the senior house officer and specialist registrar in paediatrics will need during training and when preparing for the MRCPCH examination. A series of chapters discussing general principles in paediatric medicine is followed by a section covering the problems associated with the major body systems. Each chapter within this latter section is divided into three elements: * Element A covers the background basic science to the particular problems being discussed in the chapter, including basic embryology and anatomy, biology and physiology. A description of the techniques involved in investigation where these will be critical to the diagnoses that follow is also included here. * Element B presents the core system problems for the chapter. Tables are provided to summarise the different causes, classifications and differential diagnoses, clinical features, key investigations, therapeutic options and outcomes. Concise supporting text provides more detailed information where appropriate. Selected short case histories are also included to highlight the key issues covered in the chapter. * Element C is a concise bibliography, incorporating a short series of key primary papers and review articles and suggestions for further reading. Subjects covered under general principles include developmental paediatrics, behavioural issues and learning difficulties, community paediatrics and clinical pharmacology. Clinical chapters include the respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine and all other body systems. Haematology, oncology, psychiatry, surgical problems and tropical paediatric medicine are also covered here. All chapters contain up-to-date and appropriate information written by practising paediatricians who are each acknowledged specialists in their own field. Each chapter concludes with an extended grey case and the reader will be challenged to offer possible diagnoses, investigations and treatment options, with answers and explanations provided at the end of the book. This textbook will fast become an indispensable guide to the specialty for all trainee paediatricians in preparation for the MRCPCH examination and beyond.

Can Have Books

  • Paediatric Radiology for MRCPCH/FRCR
    Christopher Schelvan, Annabel Copeman, Jane Young, Jacqueline Davis


    The book is clearly written and contains a lot of information. Images are good quality and demonstrate the abnormalities well. Written for postgraduates revising for exams in paediatrics and radiology, this study-aid covers a wide range of paediatric pathology, including the subject of imaging. The book contains around 100 different cases. Each case comprises a radiological image or images, a succinct clinical history, brief questions and a discussion that includes a synopsis of the condition illustrated and suggestions for further reading. The aim is to identify the radiological abnormality and to select the most likely diagnosis within the clinical context. Most cases are common paediatric and neonatal problems although rarer conditions are included. Suggested answers follow an explanation of the radiological findings. In addition to these cases there is an introductory chapter on basic concepts in imaging which describes the different modalities available, provides the scientific information required to help the reader understand the different techniques, and considers the relative cost of different investigations.
