"In this well-organized textbook, editors Turcios and Fink (pediatric pulmonary specialists) provide a comprehensive guide to the respiratory complications that can accompany non-pulmonary diseases. Effects and interactions between disease and lung function are detailed in 14 chapters addressing cardiac, renal, hematologic and oncologic, endocrine and metabolic, neuromuscular, rheumatoid, dermatologic, parasitic, and genetic disorders as well as chronic lung disorder in infants, pulmonary manifestations in HIV and in other immunosuppressive diseases. The chapters are clearly laid out with well-designed chapter heads that list specific diseases covered therein, followed by tables (diagnostic criteria, classification criteria, associated conditions, etc.), graphs, diagrams and black and white photos. Encouraging the effective balance between pediatric pulmonary practice and other pediatric specialties, the text provides a reference for both diagnosis and therapy."
