New chapters cover common exanthems of childhood, acne, cardiac murmur evaluation, gastrointestinal parasites, gastroesophageal reflux disease, acute abdominal pain, diabetes, and vision and hearing abnormalities.
Generic names, brand names, and suggested dosages of medications are indicated, and the Appendices include guidelines for antimicrobial drug dosages.
