Case Files Pediatrics 5th edition pdf

Case Files PediatricsThe Case Files series is an award-winning learning system proven to improve shelf-exam scores and clerkship performance. Unlike other books on the market, this series helps students learn in the context of real patients instead of simply memorizing. 

Case Files Pediatrics teaches students how to improve their diagnostic and problem-solving skills as they work through sixty high-yield clinical cases. Each case includes a complete discussion, clinical pearls, references, and USMLE-style review questions with answers. The fifth edition has been updated to include a new Case Correlations feature which highlights differential diagnosis and related cases in the book.

  • Updated to reflect the most current high-yield clerkship topics and the latest in medical management and treatment

Preface – Case Files Pediatrics

We appreciate all the kind remarks and suggestions from the many medical students over the past 3 years. Your positive reception has been an incredible encouragement, especially in light of the short life of the Case Files® series. In this fifth edition of Case Files®: Pediatrics, the basic format of the book has been retained. Improvements were made in updating many of the sections, including grouping of the cases in a more logical order for students to more easily cross-reference cases. We have also used case correlations to assist further. We reviewed the clinical scenarios and revised several of them, keeping their “real-life” presentations patterned after actual clinical experience. The multiple-choice questions have been carefully reviewed and rewritten to ensure that they comply with the National Board and USMLE format, and added an entire new section of Review Questions (Section IV) for the student to test their knowledge after reading the book. Through this fifth edition, we hope that the reader will continue to enjoy learning how to diagnose and manage patients through the simulated clinical cases. It certainly is a privilege to be teachers for so many students, and it is with humility that we present this edition.

Acknowledgment – Case Files Pediatrics

The clerkship curriculum that evolved into the ideas for this edition was inspired by two talented and forthright students, Philbert Yao and Chuck Rosipal, who have since graduated from medical school. It has been a tremendous joy to work with the excellent pediatricians at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. I am greatly indebted to my editor, Catherine Johnson, whose exuberance, experience, and vision helped to shape this series. I appreciate McGraw-Hill’s believing in the concept of teaching through clinical cases, and I would like to especially acknowledge Catherine Saggese for her production expertise, Cindy Yoo for her editorial guidance, and Anupriya Tyagi for her excellent production skills.

At the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, we appreciate Giuseppe N. Colasurdo, MD and president of the University of Texas Health Sciences Center for his support and dedication to student education. Without the encouragement from my chairman Dr. Sean Blackwell, a wonderful clinician, administrator, scientist, and leader, and Dr. Patricia Butler, Vice Dean for Educational Programs, who inspires us all to be excellent educators, I could not have succeeded in this endeavor. Most of all, I appreciate my ever-loving wife Terri, and my four wonderful children Andy, Michael, Allison, and Christina, for their patience and understanding in the writing process.


To our most precious and youngest pediatric patients, the newborn babies, and to their mothers; To the Honorable Senator Lois Kolkhorst of Brehnam, Texas, whose passion and dedication to our patients gave birth to the Perinatal Advisory Council, charged with elevating the healthcare of Texans; To my colleagues of the Perinatal Advisory Council: the talented doctors, Drs.
