Principles and Practice of Child Neurology in Infancy 2nd edition

 

The scope of the book includes all neurological problems in infancy. In the first half, it sets out in a succinct format the principles of working with families, of clinical assessment, of the use of investigations and treatments, and of evidence-based medicine. The second, symptom-based half of the book provides detailed guidance on the practice of child neurology in infancy. The authors are distinguished experts drawn from all over Europe. The contributors have approached their chapters using an accessible, didactic style and consistent organization of material. The emphasis throughout is on clinical methods, the use of appropriate investigations and treatments, and the avoidance of unnecessary or potentially harmful interventions. For quick reference, all chapters feature boxes highlighting key messages, common errors, and when to worry. The book is designed to be carried round as a handy reference.
