"Major advances in biology and medicine made during the past several decades have contributed greatly to our understanding of infections that affect the fetus and newborn. As the medical, social, and economic impact of these infections becomes more fully appreciated, the time is again appropriate for an intensive summation of existing information on this subject. Our goal for the eighth edition of this text is to provide a complete, critical, and contemporary review of this information. We have directed the book to all students of medicine interested in the care and well-being of infants, and hope to include among our readers medical students, residents and fellows, practicing physicians, microbiologists, and health care workers. We believe the text to be of particular importance for infectious disease specialists; obstetricians and physicians who are responsible for the pregnant woman and her developing fetus; pediatricians and family physicians who care for newborn infants; and primary care physicians, neurologists, audiologists, ophthalmologists, psychologists, and other specialists who are responsible for children who suffer the sequelae of infections acquired in utero or during the first month of life."
