Latin America comprises 21 countries and has a population of over 550 million people. This region of the world consists almost entirely of developing countries. There are many similarities and differences of customs and traditions among all these nations. Recently, despite important advances in the quality of life of most of the inhabitants of Latin America, the adequate diagnostic and treatment of many pediatric diseases is still a great challenge to several countries of this continent. This, in turn, occurs for several reasons. However, the efforts of many Latin American researchers working in the pediatric field have been remarkable. Thus, the aim of this special issue is to publish original studies based on standards of excellence from Latin American scientists, with focus on pediatric health and diseases. Possible authors (including physicians, dentists, nurses, physiotherapists, biologists, psychologists, social workers, among others) are encouraged to submit mainly original articles that are immediately applicable to practice (basic science, translational research and evidence-based medicine). In addition, review articles and case reports can be also considered for publication. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Pediatric Surgery
Pediatric Immunology
Pediatric Infectious Diseases
Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric Urology
