3rd Edition First published in 1992, Jean Aicardi's Diseases of the Nervous System in Childhood has established itself as sthe premier textbook of clinical child neurology, with comprehensive descriptions of neurological disorders of the neonate, infant, child and adolescent. Now revised and extensively updated, with thorough and up-to-date referencing - and reformatted with a larger page size for ease of use, and with a greatley expanded index - this second edition is certain to consolidate that reputation. Coverage includes prenatal diagnosis of nerological diseases, errors in development and metabolism (including "new diseases such as carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome, and errors in cholesterol metabolism and purine/pyrimidine metabolism), visual and auditory dysfunction, epilpsy and nonepileptic paroxysmal disorders, and the field of "biological psychiatry". Genetic counselling and recent therapeutic methods, as well as new diagnostic techniques, are extensively reviewed. The changes in presentation and treatment of some diseases as a result of changes in epidemiology and novel causes, e.g. in purulent meningitis, are also comprehensively reviewed.
