This book ‘PEDIBLOOM: Pediatric Cases and Summaries’ is organized in 18 Chapters and Appendices; Basics including Neonatology in the First Section and Systems including Pediatric Surgery in the Second Section. In each chapter, relevant data are summarized, followed by typical case reports and discussion. This format is chosen to initiate a new horizon of self study. The chapters on clinical pediatrics, growth, nutrition, development pediatrics, systemic diseases, intensive care and pediatric surgery are packed with information and practical tips. The different charts, tables and photographs included in the text and appendix form a ‘ready-reckoner’ to both undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and practicing doctors. The lucid style of presentation is commendable and touches upon all major areas of pediatrics.
