The pediatric health care provider has an important role in the investigation of cases of child pornography and child exploitation. Familiarity with normal child physical development, particularly during puberty, allows the clinician to render an opinion about the degree of sexual maturation and offer an approximation of the child's age. Recent collaboration between nations has facilitated the apprehension and prosecution of suspected offenders. The clinician can also advocate for legislation aimed at protecting children, and assist families about the safe use of the Internet. © 2009 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
