Featuring the work of Dr. Fenichel—one of the world's foremost pediatric neurologists—the completely revised and updated 5th Edition reflects the many new advances in the field. Organized by chief complaint, this resource features clear algorithms that smoothly guide readers step by step from presenting symptoms...through evaluation and management.
