Description

Neurological Problems in Childhood focuses on developmentally deviating and disabled children. This book provides an explicit and a well-balanced analyses and compilations of signs and symptoms of neurological problems, and how to deal with them in the examination room. Organized into 14 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the process of neurological examination relevant to the neonate and the infant. This text then discusses the significance of obtaining a careful description of symptoms and the need to question the child as well as the parents. Other chapters consider the variety of disorders that are genetically determined. This book discusses as well the abnormalities at birth due to faults in the early growth and development of the body. The final chapter deals with the advances in the field of genetics that contribute to the management of neurological diseases. This book is a valuable resource for pediatric neurologists, general pediatricians, and public health physicians.
