Pediatric and Developmental Pathology is designed for the timely communication of peer-reviewed studies which provide significant new information or insights into the pathophysiology of the developing human embryo, fetus, and child. Contributions are reviewed and selected by a group of distinguished referees from around the world, some of whom constitute the journal's Editorial Board. The journal covers the spectrum of disorders of early development (including embryology, placentology, and teratology), gestational and perinatal diseases, and all diseases of childhood. Studies may be in any field of experimental, anatomic, or clinical pathology, including molecular pathology. Case reports are published only if they provide new insights into disease mechanisms or new information. Each issue includes one current, comprehensive review article of a critical topic in pediatric pathology, solicited, reviewed, and edited by the Editorial Board of "Perspectives."
Editorials, biographical sketches, historical notes, annotated bibliographies, updates on pediatric cancer protocols, book reviews, laboratory or practice management, and letters are published at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief. Appropriately peer-reviewed abstracts of pediatric pathology meetings are published by prior arrangement between the society sponsoring the abstracts and the Society for Pediatric Pathology's Publications Committee.
