Infectious Diseases of the Fetus and Newborn Infant, written and edited by Drs. Remington, Klein, Wilson, Nizet, and Maldonado, remains the definitive source of information in this field. The 8th edition of this authoritative reference provides the most up-to-date and complete guidance on infections found in utero, during delivery, and in the neonatal period in both premature and term infants. Special attention is given to the prevention and treatment of these diseases found in developing countries as well as the latest findings about new antimicrobial agents, gram-negative infections and their management, and recommendations for immunization of the fetus/mother. Nationally and internationally recognized in immunology and infectious diseases, new associate editors Nizet and Maldonado bring new insight and fresh perspective to the book.


"This continues to be the gold standard in the field…it provides comprehensive summaries of all relevant topics in perinatal infectious disease. The interpretation of the literature by some of the foremost authorities in the field makes this book an invaluable part of a comprehensive perinatal library."

-Jay P. Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine) Doody Score: 96 - 4 Stars!
