Özet

Background/Purpose: The Marmara earthquake, which destroyed more than 150,000 buildings and caused 15,000 deaths and 40,000 casualties, resembled the Hanshin-Awaji earthquake in many respects. Previous reports from similar disasters from several centres have not addressed trauma in the pediatric age group. The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical and laboratory data of pediatric trauma patients referred to a tertiary center after the 1999 Marmara earthquake.
