The JIAPS was pleased to incorporate the consolidated view point of the IAPS yahoo group members on the management of empyema, so well compiled by Dr Raveenthiran. This had been the result of the active discussion that had gone on for many weeks. Many members, however, had felt that due to the limitation during their training program, they were not exposed to the intricacies of the pediatric thoracic surgery. No wonder their experience was limited to the intercostal drainage and fortunately with success. As we are aware, not many centers in the developing countries have the expertise or the equipment to perform thoracoscopic debridement or decortication; surgery is sometimes required for persistent pathologies. It was not surprising that an otherwise nicely presented view point on empyema, escaped the attention of everybody on the surgical management that includes lobectomy, pneumonectomy, and rib resections.
