ABSTRACT

Pediatrics, at present, may be divided into two parts; first that relating to the treatment of disease and perversion of function; second, that concerned with the production of well-developed physique in children. More attention is usually paid to the first than to the second of these branches.

If its scope were broadened, pediatrics might be defined as that branch of science which concerns itself with the animal aspect of the production of human beings. This science could then be divided into two parts; first, that devoted to the production of the highest development of the human being as an animal; second, that concerned with the management of the growing human animal when malformed, or with perverted functions, or subjected to mechanical injury, or attacked by parasitic microorganisms, or poisoned. It is evident then, that the pediatrist should be versed in general biology, bacteriology, protozoology, chemistry and physics.
