Staying true to the unique, problem-oriented approach of Dr. Hugh Moffet’s previous editions, the fifth edition of Moffet’s Pediatric Infectious Diseases walks the reader step by step through diagnosis and management using a signs and symptoms approach. This patient-oriented structure leads to a logical development of a differential diagnosis and evaluation and treatment plan, offering clear steps to confirm the diagnosis and provide appropriate therapy.
