The editors present volume 58 of Advances in Pediatrics. In keeping with our tradition of honoring those who contributed greatly to pediatrics, we feature Waldo Nelson, MD, a giant in our field, as our annual honoree in the “Foundations of Pediatrics” segment of this issue. The article by Chan is in keeping with our recent addition of articles on international health. As with the past issues, a variety of topics related to general pediatric care are presented, as well as topics related to infectious disease, endocrinology, surgery, pharmacology, and others. We welcome suggestions for topics to be included in future volumes of Advances in Pediatrics, and these may be communicated to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
