Book News Annotation:

Defining chronic illnesses as those that last for more than three months, Light (pediatrics, U. of Miami) offers guidance for pediatricians and other clinicians responsible for direct patient care. He begins with general considerations such as the extent of chronic illness, care, nutrition, complementary medicine, and normal and abnormal development. Then he details specific conditions that affect children and adolescents.
