Description

Cerebral Palsy: A Clinical and Neuropathological Study is an account of a detailed study in which obstetrical, neonatal and neurological investigations on a large group of patients are presented with full neuropathological data found at subsequent necropsy. The book discusses the general autopsy findings and neuropathological techniques; as well as neuropathological findings in the different clinical entities. The text also describes the neuropathological findings and classification; progressive encephalopathies; and epilepsy. Neurologists will find the book invaluable.
