The past 40 years have seen remarkable advances in paediatric neurology and in many interfacing disciplines, especially medical imaging, genetics and infectious diseases. Yet the fundamentals of neurological examination and history remain essential in the accurate diagnosis of conditions affecting the child’s nervous system.
The book begins with a detailed discussion of neurological examination techniques. It also covers basic formulation of differential diagnoses and management using neuroradiology, electrophysiology, genetic and metabolic testing, including sampling cerebrospinal fluids essential in the diagnosis and management of infectious conditions. The second section of the book follows a problem-based approach recognising how diseases present in the real world. It employs practical, symptom and sign-based strategies for virtually all conditions encountered by the practitioner.
Throughout the authors emphasise patterns of disease and how recognising them can be the first step to successful management of the child with a neurological problem. They conclude with a detailed discussion of neurological emergencies and recognise that such conditions present first to someone other than to a paediatric neurologist.
Of interest to paediatric neurologists, paediatricians, primary care physicians, and emergency physicians in training and practice.
