Book description

Congenital and perinatal infections remain a stubborn and major cause of morbidity and mortality in infants throughout the world. This concise, accessible account provides an essential guide to the diagnosis, management and prevention of these infections. The first three chapters underline how and why infections during this critical period can be so devastating. The main section of the book focuses on individual infections, and emphasises effective intervention based on the very latest knowledge and techniques. Another unique feature of this account is its recognition that the severity and types of these infections vary considerably from country to country, and from the developing world to the developed world: the international team of experts involved in this compilation have striven to make this an account that will transcend these boundaries and be suitable for all doctors and allied health professionals around the world charged with the care of the mother and newborn.


‘Newell and McIntyre provide a world-view of their subject with contributions from the UK, North and South America, South Africa and continental Europe … Congenital and Perinatal Infections manages to combine the roles of comprehensive textbook and rapid reference-source … this is a very affordable book and I would say, read it now.’

‘The editors are to be congratulated in bringing together so many experts and producing a well-indexed volume which will be of use to all those who have to diagnose and manage congenital and prenatal infections, whether they be trainees or senior people.’

‘This book contains much good and up to date advice. It describes how access to newer laboratory techniques, such as those for toxoplasmosis or neonatal infection, offer new diagnostic opportunities but need careful interpretation … this book should be read … by all those preparing for the MRCOG examination, and should be accessible at antenatal clinics to answer those uncommon but important queries relevant to congenital or perinatal infections.’
