Childhood tuberculosis (TB) is a staggering problem in India. Nearly a third of children with TB globally are from India, despite an estimated detection gap of about 56%. Although the principles of diagnosis and treatment remain similar in children and adults, the differences in the type of disease and specific host characteristics bring up some challenging variations. In this issue, the review article by Dr. Ira Shah, a National Expert on Childhood TB, on “Newer perspectives-diagnosis and management of pediatric tuberculosis” provides in-depth reading and insight into the various aspects of diagnosis and management of pediatric TB.
The article by Dr. Leena Patwardhan and Dr. Sunita Sharma on the audit of histopathology samples for preanalytical, analytical, and post-analytical errors is an interesting read. The case series by Dr. Yogesh Tiwari et al., on Childhood pilomatrixoma highlights this benign condition.
There are a few noteworthy case reports and clinical images highlighting the wide spectrum of unusual disorders and diseases in children and women. Dignity in death and the dignity of the care – providers to the individuals after death, is an important aspect of patient care, put in as an excellent brief communication by Dr. Veronique Dinand.
We have endeavored our best to bring in interesting, relevant, and good-quality articles. The ISSN for online and print version is already in place since the second issue of the journal.
