Abstract :

W hile most pediatric toxic exposures are usually benign, there are in fact many significant exceptions in young children. The rapidly advancing pharmacological landscape with new and highly potent medications and changing social landscapes have important implications in the epidemiology of toxic exposures in young children. This lecture reviews evidence-based updates on pediatric toxicology and interesting observations on pediatric toxicology based on available published literature.
