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 patientoriented
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.
?? A patient-focused, problem-oriented approach helps you develop the thought process that leads to more
accurate diagnoses and better patient care – no matter how complex the patient presentation.
