PEDIATRICS - INTRODUTION
Pediatrics (or paediatrics) is the branch of medicine that deals with the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents.
A medical practitioner who specializes in this area is known as a pediatrician, or paediatrician.
The word pediatrics and its cognates mean healer of children; they derive from two Greek words: παῖς (pais = child) and ἰατρός (iatros = doctor or healer).
In the United States, a pediatrician (US spelling) is often a primary care physician who specializes in children, whereas in the Commonwealth a paediatrician (British spelling) generally is a medical specialist not in primary general practice.
