Migraine in Childhood and other Non-Epileptic Paroxysmal Disorders is an eight-chapter book that begins with the definitions, clinical features, and diagnosis of childhood migrane. The book then describes the epidemiology and inheritance of migrane in children; variants of migrane in children; and the equivalents and management of childhood migrane. Subsequent chapters elucidate paroxysmal disorders that may be migraine or may be confused with it; the relationship between migrane and epilepsy; and the pathophysiology and precipitants of migrane. The book will be a great addition to the increasing knowledge about childhood migraine and associated disorders.
