For many years Biochemical Basis of Pediatric Disease, 3rd Edition, edited by Drs. Soldin, Rifai, and Hicks, has served as the critical standard for pediatric clinical laboratory medicine.  This new edition, retitled Biochemical and Molecular Basis of Pediatric Disease, 4th Edition, continues the previous edition?s strong focus on understanding the pathogenesis of pediatric disease, emphasizing not only the important role of the clinical laboratory in defining parameters that change with the disease process, but also the molecular basis of many pediatric diseases.

Biochemical and Molecular Basis of Pediatric Disease, 4th Edition, includes new chapters in the areas of neonatology, iron metabolism, coagulation, endocrinology, and allergy. All other chapters have been extensively updated, covering nearly all aspects of pediatric disease and the many advances that have been made in recent years. Fifty-two pediatric academic faculty, all nationally known for their pediatric clinical and laboratory expertise, have contributed to this new edition, designed not only for trainees in pediatrics and laboratory medicine, but also for well-established practitioners who wish to keep up with advances in the field and those who would like to better understand the unique aspects of pediatric disease and the clinical laboratory.
