We live in an era of enormous technological advancements in every field of medicine. Pediatrics and pediatric subspecialties have been significantly influenced by this evolution, which has led to both advancements and setbacks. Paraclinical diagnostic interventions allow us to identify congenital and other diseases with speed and efficacy that our predecessors in medical practice could never have imagined. The use of ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, molecular and biochemical examinations, genetic assays, is evolving day by day, proving essential tools for pediatric medicine, while novel pharmaceutical factors and treatment interventional modalities provide solutions to difficult—and in many cases, formerly uncurable—conditions. However, these diagnostic conveniences have often negatively affected clinical practice, particularly medical history and clinical examination, especially among younger clinicians. Furthermore, the ease of the use of pharmaceutical agents has led to drug overuse, as exemplified by the bacterial resistance resulting from overuse of antibiotics.
In this Special Issue, we will explore the diagnostic and therapeutic experiences of colleagues in various sectors of pediatrics and their associated specialties. We are seeking original articles and comprehensive reviews which investigate the advancements in diagnosis and management of pediatric diseases, and how they have affected clinical practice. We are particularly interested in works that address researchers’ difficulties, complications, and concerns, and in their proposals for future practice.
