"Chapter 43 discusses the expansion of the psychopharmacological armamentarium and the advances in the medical treatment of severely ill pediatric patients, and how child and adolescent psychiatrists are increasingly being called upon to manage these patients adjunctively with psychiatric medication. For example, the child psychiatry consultant may be called to evaluate comorbid psychiatric illness in a medically ill patient, neuropsychiatric syndromes secondary to medical or neurological illness or the medications used to treat them, or somatoform disorders.

Because symptoms of the illness itself may hamper psychiatric assessment, the consultant must rely heavily on premorbid history and other informants such as the parents, nurses, and primary care physician in assessing the meaning of current symptoms."
