Special Issue "Rare Disease and Recent Advances in Neonatal and Pediatric Surgery"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 December 2021.
Interests: pediatric solid tumor; congenital malformations; novel therapeutic strategies for neuroblastoma; inhibition of hypoxia-related tumor progression; hypoxia-related causes of neonatal malformations
Rare diseases in early childhood can be severe and life-threatening. The patho-mechanisms behind most of these diseases are still poorly understood. Some pathologies of early childhood can be corrected, or at least ameliorated, by surgical skills. Pediatric surgeons constantly strive to improve outcomes by the innovation of surgical techniques. Surgical options might, however, be limited due to anatomical or structural limitations, other comorbidities as well as preterm birth or disease progression. Current research is focused on exploring novel treatment options and prevention strategies for these diseases. In order to achieve development in this field, it is of utmost importance to understand the underlying mechanisms in detail.
The goal of this Special Issue of Children is to highlight the current state of research on the underlying mechanisms of neonatal and pediatric diseases and innovative treatment strategies that have a surgical impact. We encourage authors to submit manuscripts on all aspects of surgical research regarding these topics.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Children is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
