ABSTRACT

This book, originally published in 1958, is now available in an expanded and extensively updated edition. For years known to all of us as "Krugman and Ward," the sixth edition added Samuel Katz as a third author. Now, owing to the untimely death of Robert Ward, the seventh edition is again under two authors. Nonetheless, as a reference source, "Krugman and Katz" deserves a reserved place on the bookshelves of all who concern themselves with the clinical care of children.

The most appealing aspect of this book always has been and remains the very clear manner of its writing and presentation. Most particularly, this applies to descriptions of the clinical entities themselves. This is a book for bedside medicine. After reading the careful section on mumps, for example, with a clear diagram of the anatomic location of the parotid gland, one is unlikely to confuse it with cervical adenopathy. Group
