About this title

Synopsis:

Now in its fourth edition, Pellock's Pediatric Epilepsy: Diagnosis and Therapy remains the gold standard for diagnosis, treatment, classification,and management of childhood epilepsies. With over 100 distinguished contributors from world-leading epilepsy programs, the long-awaited new editionmaintains the breadth and scope the book is known for while significantly updating the science, practice, and therapeutic strategies that continue to movethe field forward.

There is a major emphasis on new genetic-basedclassifications and the clinical implications for identifying and managing the various subtypes. New chapters devoted exclusively to Panayiotopoulossyndrome, myoclonic status epilepticus, and autosomal dominant focal epilepsies, among others, cover even more ground than the last edition. Brand-newchapters in the drug and diet section cover perampanel, ezogabine, and lacosamide, while the existing chapters on major medical treatments have beencomprehensively updated to reflect the latest trials and studies. Other sections contain new chapters on genetics, non-invasive functional mapping, sleepissues for pediatric epilepsy patients, and more.

With more than 80 chapters, Pellock's Pediatric Epilepsy now contains a full discussion of the spectrum of epilepsy disorders, not just seizures.From basic mechanisms and epidemiology, through diagnosis and therapy, to quality of life issues, the new edition of this established reference coversevery aspect of childhood epilepsy and will continue to be the definitive core text for all professionals involved in the field.
