The West African outbreak of 2013 to 2016 was the largest Ebola epidemic in history. With tens of thousands of patients treated during this outbreak, much was learned about how to optimize clinical care for children with Ebola. In anticipation of inevitable future outbreaks, a firsthand summary of the major aspects of pediatric Ebola case management in austere settings is presented. Emphasis is on early and aggressive critical care, including fluid resuscitation, electrolyte repletion, antimicrobial therapy, and nutritional supplementation.
