Each year, Advances in Pediatrics brings you the best current thinking from the preeminent practitioners in your field. A distinguished editorial board identifies current areas of major progress and controversy and invites specialists to contribute original articles on these topics. These insightful overviews bring concepts to a clinical level and explore their everyday impact on patient care. Among the topics included in this year’s edition are Neuroblastoma, Cochlear Implants, Pediatric Epilepsy, Pediatric Intestinal Failure, Immunization Update, and Nurtional Recommendations, to name a few. Each edition has a tradition of honoring those who contributed greatly to pediatrics in the "Foundations of Pediatrics" segment; this edition features Waldo Nelson, MD, a giant in the field, as the annual honoree.
