Somos constantemente atacados por antígenos e patógenos e, para tanta hostilidade, contamos com um sofisticado sistema de defesa - o sistema imune. Por meio dele, garantimos a homeostasia contra agentes agressores e, além disso, criamos um sistema de memória imunológica para que, em uma invasão posterior, estejamos com o arsenal pronto para a batalha.
Agora, quando se trata de crianças, o desafio é maior ainda. O contato com patógenos é acentuado nessa etapa da vida (uma vez que as crianças são, naturalmente, curiosas) e temos também nessa fase o desenvolvimento e a maturação de um sistema imune. Isso faz com que seja necessário que nós, médicos, tenhamos conhecimento da imunologia de nossos pequenos pacientes.
Pensando nisso, segue o que há de mais novo em Imunologia em pediatria para que você, doutor(a), atualize sua estante!

A ideia para a edição deste livro nasceu do desejo de compartilhar o conteúdo do curso précongresso Triagem Neonatal – Necessidade? Realidade? Utopia?, do VII Congresso Brasileiro Multidisciplinar de Fibrose Cística, organizado pela equipe do Centro Especializado de Referência em Fibrose Cística da Unicamp. Talvez pela carência deste tipo de material, cada colega a quem recorremos para escrever os capítulos foi trazendo entusiasmo pela causa e apontando novos caminhos. Todas as sugestões foram incorporadas e aqui está a obra Triagem Neonatal e Doenças Raras, muito maior do que a proposta inicial, com conteúdo rico, conquistado pela generosidade dos vários autores engajados na luta pela triagem neonatal e dispostos a partilhar seu conhecimento e sua experiência. Trata-se de um material muito útil para pediatras, sanitaristas, gestores da saúde pública e da atenção privada e para todas as equipes multiprofissionais envolvidas no processo da triagem neonatal.
