  7. How may I view cases from previous months and years?

    To review cases from previous months and years, use the calendar in the left column of the page or you may use the case archives:
    Cases by Disease
    Cases by Symptom
    Cases by Specialty
    Cases by Age
    Cases by Date

  8. One of the links in the “To Learn More” section of a case is broken

    Web sites are reorganized on an all-too-often basis, and the location of the document being linked to may have changed. Alternatively, the document may have been replaced by a more up-to-date document. You have two options:

    1. Go to the home page of the Web site in question, and type into its search engine the title of the document you are looking for. This will hopefully locate for you the new location of the document or the new version of the document.

    2. Go to the Internet Archive and type the Web address (URL) of the document in question into its WayBack Machine search engine and see if it has an archived copy of the document.
  9. Some of the information in the older cases is wrong!

    The practice of pediatrics is a dynamic process that is constantly changing and evolving. The information in each case was correct, to the best of our knowledge, on the date it was published. It is not our intention to revise older cases as the practice of pediatrics advances. Instead, please use the cases as a historical archive to see how the practice of pediatrics for a certain disease has evolved over time.

  10. Do you have a flyer that I can duplicate and use to help publicise the site?

    Yes, an online version of our flyer can be found: here

    Yes, our RSS feed may be found at:
    feed://www.pediatriceducation.org/feed/
