The systematic study of the urological diseases of childhood, which is the theme of this volume, is a comparatively recent development, for although many of the pioneers of urology such as Marion and H. H. Young made important contributions on particular disorders, it is only in the last quarter of a century that the subject as a whole has received the attention which it deserves, and the disorders have been seen in their proper context as problems in the management of infants and children as well as variations on familiar problems in urology.
