EzechukwuProfessor of Paediatrics; Consultant Paediatrician; Secretary-General, West African College of Physicians"This is a synopsis of common pediatric problems in the tropics compiled by a group of experienced pediatricians who have practiced widely in the field. It will provide a necessary guide for medical students and residents preparing for clinical exams, while it also highlights important points in the pathophysiology of some clinical features and conditions. I would recommend it as a handbook for students and residents."Professor Henrietta U. OkaforDirector, Institute of Child Health, University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital"In all, the book is well-conceived and bridges the gap of paucity of relevant textbooks for use in the tropics. It is a commendable effort to make available in a concise, easy to read, comprehensive and all-encompassing manner, information about common childhood illnesses and conditions. It is useful not only to beginners or first year clinical students but also to residents and consultants. It is a valuable resource material for all professionals involved in providing healthcare to children."Professor Jerome Boluwaji Elutayo ElusiyanWest African Journal of Medicine, Vol. 36 No.1 2019
