About the Book
Current Diagnosis and Treatment: Pediatrics has long been a popular component of the Lange Current series, traditionally selling 20,000+ copies worldwide with each edition. Also, the eBook of the 20th edition is currently the second highest-selling eBook on our pediatrics list, after Gomella's Neonatology. Known as the "go-to" guide to pediatric care, the book is updated every two years to keep it current, concise, and practical enough for everyday use by medical students, residents, and pediatricians alike.

The 20th edition featured new chapters and an overall expansion of content leading to a higher page count. For the 21st edition, the editors will focus on critical updates, as per usual, but also on fine-tuning the previous edition additions to bring the page count back down.

New to this edition is Professor Mark J. Azbug as editor to replace Judy Sondheimer. Dr. Azbug will provide a fresh perspective to the project, particularly to the popular infectious disease chapters.

Critical to this title is the timely revision for new generations of incoming students and residents. With the 20th edition, we improved the September publication date by six weeks. For the 21st edition, we aim to improve the date even further by publishing in June 2012, just in advance of the July start of residency programs. This should increase our laydown and adoption opportunities.
