Most pediatricians do not have special training in pediatric environmental health, but environmental exposures are among parents' top concerns for their children. Parents may come to their pediatricians seeking advice about symptoms that they think may be related to an environmental hazard. They may worry about exposures even if their children have no symptoms. Occasionally, pediatricians may diagnose an illness caused by an environmental exposure but may not be familiar with the illness because it is uncommon.
