General pediatricians will appreciate the chapters about clinical syndromes, such as gastroenteritis and neonatal sepsis. These chapters present information about the many bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic agents implicated in each syndromerepresenting 27 distinct pathogens in gastroenteritis, for example and provide current recommendations for management. Specialists will value the thorough reviews of new pathogens, notably HIV, and reemerging threats, such as that posed by tuberculosis. In the late 1950s, hospital-acquired infections caused by penicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus constituted a new problem. Now, complex protocols for diagnostic evaluation and antimicrobial regimens are necessary to manage infections that may be caused by resistant organisms in hospitalized or chronically ill infants and children, who often have progressive diseases such as cystic fibrosis. Specialists in pediatric infectious disease, other specialists in pediatrics or surgery, and general pediatricians often care for these children together and can share the information provided by experts on these issues.
