Research published by Minerva Pediatrica has reviewed the use of CAM in paediatrics in Italy.

The researchers from the Cattedra di Pediatria. Università Magna Graecia di Catanzaro, Catanzaro, Italy, wanted to study regional differences in usage and found that amongst children who had attended a pediatric department in Turin, Catenzaro or Cosenza found that usage varied by area.

In Turin 43% of the children were also treated with some kind of CAM therapy; in Cosenza it was 38% and in Catanzo only 21%.

The authors noted that response to their survey (1,136 respondents) showed that older, better educated parents tended to use CAM.

And whilst homeopathy was the most popular therapy in Turin, phytotherapy was more popular in the South (other 2 regions).

The main condition treated was respiratory disease.
