Paediatric euthanasia use in the Netherlands

After the approval of paediatric euthanasia in Belgium, this practice has been reviewed in Holland, where it is legal for children aged 12 or over. However, its use has been very limited, since in the last 10 years, only 5 cases of euthanasia in children have been reported, 4 in adolescents aged between 16 and 17 years, and one in a 12-year-old (JAMA 312; 1258-1259, 2014).
