Preface

In a December 30, 1976 cover story interview in Rolling Stone magazine, author Maurice Sendak commented, “There’s so much more to a book than just the reading. I’ve seen children touch books, fondle books, smell books, and it’s all the reason in the world why books should be beautifully produced.”¹ Anyone who has given a book to a 1-year-old child in clinic has probably witnessed a child touch, smell, and even taste a book. For a young child with a new book, every sense is engaged.

My colleagues and I now present a beautifully produced eighth edition of The 5-Minute Pediatric Consult. Unlike Mr. Sendak and his young readers, we don’t expect you to literally smell or taste this book; however, we have produced a beautiful book that figuratively can be consumed at many different levels.

For those readers who need just a “taste” of each topic, each chapter is designed to give the reader a quick overview. A clinician in a busy office or emergency department can quickly look up a description of each condition, as well as what key questions to ask in a history, what findings to look for during the examination, and what tests are most important to prioritize to confirm a diagnosis. Each chapter also includes a differential of other diagnoses to consider and a concise summary of treatment options. For clinicians who need more than just a brief taste of information, each chapter also includes more information on the etiology, pathophysiology, risk factors, and prognosis of each condition. Finally, for those who want to heavily consume the topic, there are suggestions for additional reading, as well as potential “frequently asked questions” that add even further depth and flavor to each chapter.

There is also a second meaning to Mr. Sendak’s comment that “there’s so much more to a book than just the reading.” Before any reading takes place, there is all the writing and editing that has already been completed. Although each of the chapters is only two pages of reading, each topic represents years of clinical experience as well as countless hours of research, writing, and editing. The authors of these chapters have demonstrated great skill in distilling large amounts of information into an easily accessible 5-minute synopsis or “consult” on a range of clinical topics.

The eighth edition of the book, with over 500 topics, also reflects the continuing achievements and ordeals of the field of pediatrics. With improvements in neonatal care, we now introduce a chapter focused on “Follow-up of the NICU Graduate.” With each passing edition, it is also more difficult to find experts on diseases now less common, such as Diphtheria, Measles, Rheumatic Fever, and Reye Syndrome. However, our field also faces new challenges that are represented by new chapters focused on Zika Virus, Chikungunya Virus, Ebola Virus Disease, and even Vaccine Refusal.

To organize this effort, I am fortunate to work with a diverse, distinguished, and talented team of associate editors, who have recruited accomplished authors for each topic. This team of associate editors includes Paul R. Brakeman, MD, PhD; Megan L. Curran, MD; Linda A. DiMeglio, MD, MPH; W. Christopher Golden, MD; Robert E. Goldsby, MD; Terry Kind, MD, MPH; Carlton K.K. Lee, PharmD, MPH; Jenifer R. Lightdale, MD, MPH; Camille Sabella, MD; and Ronn E. Tanel, MD. I have learned from each comment on each draft of each chapter they edited and reviewed. I also give special thanks to Angela Scheuerle, MD who reorganized and updated our Syndromes Glossary for this edition. This updated section includes unique identifiers for dozens of genetic conditions, the associated inheritance pattern, the involved gene(s), mechanism of disease, as well as a description of the associated clinical findings. Finally, I would also like to thank the staff at Wolters Kluwer, especially Leanne Vandetty and Harold Medina, who have helped us present this work so beautifully.

We hope this book will continue to be an indispensable resource for health care professionals who care for children. With these acknowledgments, it is a pleasure to welcome you to this new edition of The 5-Minute Pediatric Consult. And in the words of Mr. Maurice Sendak once again, “let the wild rumpus start!”²
