"More than any prior edition of this textbook, the fifth edition has been substantially updated and revised. Nearly one third of the chapters have been written by new authors, and 16 chapters appear in this book for the first time. In addition, the book now concludes with a section on the pathophysiology of a variety of neonatal diseases that has 23 new or completely updated chapters."--Preface
