What British Medical Journal says about PSU: " If you want a good all round resource for paediatric surgery then look no further than home.coqui.net/titolugo/index.htm. It originates from Puerto Rico and is bristling with useful and relevant information, including a journal and a handbook as well as a links page. There is also information about relevant meetings and bodies such as the associated paediatric surgical department. All this and more is neatly packaged into a colourful and well designed website."  Reference - BMJ 318:817, 1999 (March 20, 1999).
