Abstract
The Special Edition of Neonatal Medicine was published to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Korean Society of Neonatology. This volume covers the footprint of academic achievement in neonatology in Korea over the past 20 years. It contains articles regarding the changing trends in epidemiology of neonatal diseases including strategies to overcome survival limits of extreme premies and improvements in neonatal intensive care practices. We tried to cover various therapeutic areas such as bilirubin metabolism, bilirubin encephalopathy, metabolic bone diseases of prematurity, neonatal lung diseases, pathophysiology and identification of risk factors of bronchopulmonary dysplasia, and clinical application of plasma B-type natriuretic peptide test in preterm babies with patent ductus arteriosus. In addition, articles concerning clinical application of neural stem cells as well as pharmacotherapy of neonatal hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy are featured. Other topics that are not covered in this volume will be published as review articles in the following issues of Neonatal Medicine. This compilation of valuable articles by contributing authors is the culmination of hard work and sleepless nights of Korean neonatologists. I would like to express sincere gratitude for the interest and participation of all the members of the Korean Society of Neonatology for the advancement of neonatal care and the society.
