Abstract

Part of the “What Do I Do Now?” series, Pediatric Neurology uses a case-based approach to cover common and important topics in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions in children. Each chapter provides a discussion of the diagnosis, key points to remember, and selected references for further reading. For this edition, the table of contents has been reorganized, and all cases and references have been updated. New cases have been added, including Charcot Marie Tooth, NMDA receptor antibody-mediated encephalopathy, Guillain-Barré syndrome, transverse myelitis, tics/Tourette syndrome, conversion disorder, chronic daily headache, and Chiari I malformation. Pediatric Neurology is an engaging collection of thought-provoking cases that clinicians can utilize when they encounter difficult patients. The volume is also a self-assessment tool that tests the reader’s ability to answer the question, “What do I do now?”
