Movement Disorders in Childhood book cover

Movement Disorders in Childhood

Movement disorders are a relatively new area of specialization within child neurology. For many years, movement abnormalities affecting the pediatric population received little attention in adult-oriented textbooks, and chapters were frequently written by adult neurologists. Over the past several decades, child neurologists have assumed a greater role in the care of children with movement disorders and the investigation of their underlying etiologies and mechanisms. This new edition will build upon the success of the 1st Edition and add new materials with a more disease oriented approach and add coverage of genetic causes, metabolic and immunological origination of movement disorders in childhood.


Neurologists, pediatricians, developmental pediatricians, clinical researchers interested in pediatric neurology
