Pediatrics is the branch of medicine related to medical care of infants, children, and adolescents up to 18 years of age. The origin of this medical science can be traced in Ancient India. During sixth century BC Sushruta Samhita an ayurvedic text described about pediatrics. In ancient India there were separate doctors for children's diseases and were called as kumara bhrtya. Now in modern days a medical practitioner who specializes in child medicine is called as pediatrician, or paediatrician. Due to the change in life styles of parents and pollution now child health care has become a global concern.

Articles with highly advanced scientific content are given high priority for publication, for example an article on Cranial Neurosurgery without Hair Removal has been published. The authors did Retrospective analysis of clinical records of children who had undergone cranial neurosurgery with “shampoo care”. Their results showed that among 450 children 5.55% of them had a wound complication and two cases showed signs of infection (0.4%). They revised the available literature to assess the effectiveness of their protocol. They found that Wound complications and infections rates found were lower than those reported in patients treated with a standard trichotomy. The authors concluded that cranial neurosurgery without hair removal and “shampoo care” is an effective method for reducing infection rates and by this the stay in hospital will be shorter than the normal, and improves the self-esteem and quality of life when the child returns to family life and school.
