This book offers a comprehensive description of the neurological disorders of children. It covers all clinical aspects of child neurology and, as far as possible, all significant diseases of the central and peripheral nervous systems from the fetal period to adolescence. Although emphasis is on the common diseases, enough data are included on unusual and rare disorders to provide the reader with all the essential information about these illnesses and, by providing extensive references and suggestions for further reading, can guide the reader to the necessary further sources of information. There are separate chapters on neonatal neurology and fetal neurology as these represent a specific field within child neurology as a whole. Special chapters are devoted to disorders of the visual and auditory systems, and some aspects of the involvement of the central nervous system in systemic disease are discussed. Finally, there are several chapters that discuss mental development and some of the major psychiatric disorders.
