The first edition of this book was written in 1992 to assist candidates preparing for the Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (Part 1) Examination in Paediatrics, or for the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (Part 2) Examination in Paediatrics, inspired by Talley and O’Connor’s book Examination Medicine.

The second edition came out in 2002, and the third in 2006. Much to my amazement, it has continued to sell well enough to justify ongoing editions. More changes are needed with each edition, as the progress of medical knowledge has been staggering. I shall try to continue in Talley and O’Connor’s adult-sized footsteps, and hope that this edition is yet more useful than the previous one.

I believe there is much of relevance to senior medical students and general practitioners, as well as to paediatric trainees. All previous long cases have been extensively updated and rewritten, and a new one (obstructive sleep apnoea) added; previous short cases have been updated, and a new one (virilisation) added; there are new expanded sections of previous chapters, new mnemonics and broader background information, and a new section covering William’s syndrome. As noted in previous editions, this is not the ‘Einstein Encyclopaedia of Paediatrics’; its purpose is to make the hurdle of any paediatric examination easier to clear.
