Abstract

These authors review four areas of office pediatric practice: office laboratory procedures, office economics, parenting and parent education, and urinary tract infections. Thomas Ball reviews the literature published this past year on physician office laboratories, with updates on the Clinical Laboratories Improvement Amendments, laboratory utilization, and office diagnosis of infectious mononucleosis. Eve Shapiro offers an update on office economics, discussing physician organizations and managed care, and a medical ethics evaluation of medical economics. Burris Duncan provides an update on parenting and parent education, with emphasis on defining 'the best interests of the child.' Richard Wahl summarizes the past year's publications on pediatric urinary tract infections, reviewing the circumcision debate, dysfunctional voiding, vesicoureteral reflux, and the diagnosis and follow-up of acute pyelonephritis.
