Infection and immunity in children are the most common and troublesome diseases in pediatrics. In recent years, various new infections, especially COVID-19 and influenza, have attracted great attention from global pandemics and scientists. Many new diagnostic and treatment plans and guidelines have emerged. Similarly, childhood infection and immunity have also been a hot topic in the field of pediatrics in recent years, with many influential articles appearing. Pan et al. Found that PCT as a useful biomarker for kawasaki disease diagnosis. And they found that new immunoglobulin-resistant kawasaki disease nomogram that incorporates age, C-reactive protein, coronary artery lesions, platelet, neutrophil%, alanine transaminase and aminotransferase may be adopted for predicting the risk of immunoglobulin-resistant kawasaki disease. Benefiting from the joint efforts of global scientists, many new perspectives and treatment methods have emerged for childhood infections and immunity.
