Although infectious diseases are still the chief cause of death in children in a developing country like ours, but a definite increase in incident and related mortality due to trauma has been noted inthe last decade.
The problems relating to pediatric trauma are peculiar to our setup and differ considerably to the severe multiple organ trauma met with in the high velocity vehicular accidents, seen in developed Western countries.
The present study identifies patterns of childhood trauma from our region.
It comprises 2100 patients admitted over a 3 years period to Pediatric Surgical Unit.
