At the moment of birth, the obstetrician is presented with a wide range of visual signs and symptoms in the neonate that may be entirely normal or that may indicate the presence of some underlying condition or disease. Being able to recognize these at an early stage is often particularly important for their successful management. This exceptionally illustrated atlas, authored by the President of the European Society of Perinatal Medicine and a leading authority in the field, provides an important visual guide to the correct diagnosis of the newborn. It will be a valuable aid to many obstetricians and others involved in the health management of infants.
