Congenital or early-onset disorders of the nervous system have a profound and lifelong impact on the lives of children and their families.  Diseases of the Nervous System in Childhood provides up-to-date information on the full range of these neurological disorders, from fetal and neonatal neurology to adolescence.Movement disorders, epilepsies and seizure disorders, metabolic diseases, auditory and visual disorders, and genetic anomalies are among the many topics covered in this text.  Extensive reference lists at the end of each chapter guide the clinician to further relevant reading.This fourth edition retains the patient-focussed, clinical approach of its predecessors. The international team of editors and contributors has honoured the request of the late Jean Aicardi, that his book remain ‘resolutely clinical&, which distinguishes Diseases of the Nervous System in Childhood from other texts in the field.This edition:Is completely revised and updatedIncludes latest developments in genetic advancesContains new chapters on basal ganglia diseases and psychogenic disordersHas an easy-to-use one volume format with full-colour illustrations
