Abstract The Internet is evolving as a powerful source of medical information for patients, family members, and health care providers; however, critical analyses of this information are generally lacking. This investigation was carried out to ascertain the sources, nature, and accuracy of information acquired via searches on the Internet for ten common pediatric neurosurgical topics. Thirteen source types and nine categories of information were characterized and examined. With few notable exceptions, the educational information was highly accurate. It is concluded that the Internet represents an important new pediatric neurosurgery educational resource for the layman and health care providers. Guidelines are offered to assist in the use of this new medium.
