The Red Book Atlas would not exist without the help of Heather Babiar, Jason Crase and Theresa Wiener from the AAP and those doctors who photographed symptoms in their patients and shared them with the AAP. Some diseases have disappeared (e.g. smallpox), others are rare due to effective prevention strategies, especially vaccinations (e.g. diphtheria, tetanus, congenital rubella syndrome). While photos cannot replace practical familiarity, they have helped me consider the likelihood of alternative diagnoses and I hope it does for the reader. I would also like to thank the many people at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who have generously provided many images of the etiological agents, vectors, and life cycles of parasites and protozoa relevant to some of these infections. Studying pediatric infectious diseases was a challenging and constantly changing professional life for me that gave me enormous pleasure. Using ears, eyes, nose, and hands to collect data (the increasingly outdated medical history and physical exam) and select the least needed diagnostic tests to solve the mystery for the patient is still exciting. Putting these pieces together to get a clear picture is like solving a crime.

On many occasions, just seeing the clue (a characteristic rash, an asymmetry, a barely visible scar in which a foreign body is hidden unnoticed) has solved the medical mystery for me and thus – with the right treatment – led to the child’s complete recovery. This can bring satisfaction that almost nothing else can replace. I hope that after reading the fourth edition of the Red Book Atlas, readers will notice a little of this excitement.

Example Content:


On the basis of a nationally representative survey, 14% of the US population older than 5 years has serologic evidence of Toxocara infection. Visceral toxocariasis typically occurs in children 2 to 7 years of age but can occur in older children and adults. Ocular toxocariasis usually occurs in older children and adolescents. The highest seroprevalence is found among African American children, children in the southern United States, and some indigenous communities in Canada, as well as populations with low education levels and those living in areas where dog feces are found. Humans are infected by ingestion of soil containing infective eggs of the parasite. Eggs may be found wherever dogs

Albendazole is recommended for treatment of visceral toxocariasis. Mebendazole is an alternative. In severe cases with myocarditis or involvement of the central nervous system, corticosteroid therapy should be considered. The benefits of anthelmintic treatment for ocular toxocariasis are not well defined, although positive outcomes have been reported with a 2-week course of albendazole and prednisone. Inflammation may be decreased by topical or systemic corticosteroids, and secondary damage may be decreased with ophthalmologic surgery.
