The purpose of the International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology is to concentrate and disseminate information concerning prevention, cure and care of otorhinolaryngological disorders in infants and children. This includes a broad range of clinical and pathological disorders involving the ears, nose, throat and associated structures. The Journal provides a medium for clinical and basic science contributions in all of the areas of pediatric otorhinolaryngology. This includes medical and surgical otology, bronchoesophagology, laryngology, rhinology, diseases of the head and neck, and disorders of communication. Given that this is a pediatric-focused journal, all submissions that deal with clinical populations should have a patient age range of 0-18 years of age. Manuscripts with patients outside of this age range will not be considered for publication. The journal typically does not publish case reports unless there is an exceptional and novel case report is a very unique or important area within pediatric otolaryngology. For all other cases and brief reports, consider submitting to Otolaryngology Case Reports. Letters to the Editor that provide "expert opinion" on a publication are not generally considered for publication unless there is novel data supplied within the letter that warrants independent consideration.
