Movement Disorders in Childhood, Second Edition provides the most up-to-date information on movement disorders, 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. 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 builds upon the newfound interest on the topic and the success of the first edition, adding new materials and a more disease oriented approach, along with added coverage of genetic causes and metabolic and immunological origination of movement disorders in childhood.
