Pediatric hepatology has expanded in the last couple of decades as the amount of information of genetics, developmental biology, and metabolic studies has increased exponentially. This new Special Issue focusing on pediatric liver diseases has the intent to conglomerate research and review articles on several fields of the developing and damaged liver. The influence of the environment on liver diseases has grabbed our attention because of climate change but also because of the number of toxins that a child may be exposed to in developed and underdeveloped countries. The perspective of new clinical trials for autoimmune hepatitis and infectious liver diseases will be also part of this Special Issue. A section will also be reserved for imaging diagnostics. Digital images through a multitude of social media platforms and the introduction of new algorithms in artificial intelligence will help to efficiently and effectively implement new platforms of electronic medical records and approaches to personalized medicine.
