About this title

Synopsis:

Clinics in Developmental Medicine No. 191-192

This clinically orientated text by an international group of experts is the first definitive reference book on disorders of the cerebellum in children. It presents a wealth of practical clinical experience backed up by a strong scientific basis for the information and guidance given. The first part sets out the theoretical underpinnings of cerebellar disorders. This is followed by sections on clinical conditions grouped according to common characteristics such as aetiology and symptomatology. The descriptions of the clinical conditions each systematically cover, as appropriate, epidemiology, prevalence, diagnostic criteria, clinical features (including course and prognosis), pathophysiology, genetics, investigations, differential diagnosis, and management and treatment.

This book will be an invaluable resource for all those caring for children affected by cerebellar disorders, including malformations, genetic and metabolic disorders, acquired cerebellar damage, vascular disorders and acute ataxias.

This comprehensive reference text on cerebellar disorders in children includes chapters on cerebellar development, prenatal cerebellar imaging, imaging of the posterior fossa, with coverage of a broad range of malformations, genetic and metabolic disorders involving the cerebellum, prenatal cerebellar disruptions (as related to prematurity), vascular disorders, tumors and paraneoplastic syndromes, as well as acute ataxia and trauma to the posterior fossa. Numerous checklists are provided to assist in the differential diagnosis of clinical signs and neuroimaging findings.

Readership:
Paediatric neurologists, paediatricians, neurologists, developmental paediatricians, neuroimaging specialists, geneticists, neonatologists

About the Author:

Prof. Dr Eugen Boltshauser is Head of the Department of Neurology at the University Children's Hospital in Zurich. He has published on several neuropaediatric topics and particularly on cerebellar malformations and cerebellar disruptions. He proposed the designation Joubert syndrome (also known as Joubert-Boltshauser syndrome) in the second paper on this topic for the rare hereditary malformation syndrome of brainstem and cerebellum, at present probably the best studied cerebellar malformation, a paradigm for marked genetic heterogeneity and a "model disease" for impaired primary cilia function as well as for disturbed axonal guidance

Dr Jeremy Schmahmann is Professor of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School and Director of the Ataxia Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA. He was awarded the Norman Geschwind Prize for research in behavioral neurology from the American Academy of Neurology and the Behavioral Neurology Society, and the Distinguished Neurology Teacher Award from the American Neurological Association. He pioneered the field of the cognitive neuroscience of the cerebellum, describing a new clinical syndrome - the cerebellar cognitive affective syndrome. His anatomical investigations and clinical and imaging studies have helped change the way we understand and treat patients with cerebellar disorders and neuropsychiatric illness.

Store Description

Thank you for taking an interest in one of our books. Please see the "Shipping Terms" section below for details on our shipping and returns policies. We are a mail-order only bookstore located in Bellingham, WA specializing in modern out-of-print books of all genres. We thoroughly clean all books that we offer for sale and do all basic book-repairs ourselves. Basic repairs include repairing slanted bindings, applying additional glue to hinges that have become excessively loose, hinge-tape repairs for damaged hinges, minor binding split repairs, gluing small tears in exterior of covers, removal (as much as possible) of black marker marks to covers of ex-library books, removal of smaller non-permanent stickers, straightening of minor bowing to covers or spine, and applying jacket protectors to books with torn or fragile jackets or for especially pristine or collectible books. We do not do major binding repairs, and any un-repairable binding splits or general weakness in binding will be noted. Any significant repairs such as a hinge-tape repair will also be noted. These repairs do not usually change the underlying condition grade, but do make the book more presentable. Some books are beyond help and will be listed as "Fair/Acceptable" or "Poor". We do not follow ILAB grading guidelines as we sell newer books across many venues. Our grading system is based mainly on Amazon's grading system. Former library copies are never graded above "Good" regardless of level of wear. We watch closely for any signs of water damage, and even minor water damage will be graded no better than "Good," and all signs of water exposure will be noted. Below is a list of the condition grades we use, in descending order: New/Fine Like New/Near Fine Very Good++ Very Good+ Very Good Minus Good++ Good+ Good Fair-to-Good Fair/Acceptable Poor Very Poor We try to grade accurately, but condition grades are often subjective, so our grading in on the conservative side.

Shipping Terms:

SHIPPING POLICY: We ship exclusively through the US Post Office, and orders are shipped within two business days of order processing. International orders for books that are over 4 lbs or larger than about 7" x 10" will incur additional oversize charges. We fully insure all shipments, both domestic and international, at no additional cost. All domestic shipments are trackable through the US Post Office, however, international shipments are not trackable unless Express/EMS shipping is specifically requested. This shipping method is a little faster than the standard Priority Airmail shipping and is fully trackable. The disadvantage is the cost: it costs about 30% more than the standard Airmail/Expedited option, but is available if requested. Regardless of delivery method, we fully insure all shipments.

RETURNS POLICY: We offer an unconditional two-week return policy: books can be returned for any reason if sent back within two weeks of the date they are received. The buyer is responsible for shipping charges unless the book was mis-described, in which case we will be responsible for all shipping charges. If you need to return a book, please contact us through ABE and we will forward full return instructions.
