Abstract

Pediatric surgical pathology in the chest can occur in the heart, the lung, the mediastinum, or the chest wall. Mechanisms of disease can range from congenital anomalies, infectious or inflammatory conditions, trauma, neoplasia, or disorders of organ function. This section addresses a wide variety of thoracic problems encountered by the pediatric surgeon, and gives examples of how these problems can be diagnosed and managed effectively.
