Electroencephalography (EEG) is an essential tool in the work-up of neurological disorders, especially of epilepsy, in which both diagnosis and classification
into different syndromes rely heavily on EEG. Yet everyday experience shows the frequency of errors committed by neurologists and electroencephalographers
who are not familiar with the specificities of the EEG of children in health and in disease.
This underlines the need for information specifically concerned with the peculiarities of the EEG in the pediatric age and for an easily readable and well-illustrated reference.
This book by Warren T. Blume and Masako Kaibara precisely responds to this need. It is a thorough yet simple clinically oriented guide to the interpretation
of the EEG during brain maturation and in common neurological diseases of childhood. Because children’s EEGs are often misinterpreted, this atlas emphasizes
and beautifully illustrates a wide range of normal variants and a number of EEGs that are not found in older persons and thus are frequently considered abnormal
by electroencephalographers who work mostly with adults. This atlas also describes and illustrates the pecularities and evolution with age of EEG abnormalities
and some of the conditions in which they appear, especially those that are specific to infancy and childhood. For each of these variants or abnormalities, multiple
figures are provided, thus enabling the reader to identify the patterns in different contexts. Also, the essential questions raised by the interpretation of the EEG
are clearly formulated, adding to the practical usefulness of the book.
One major strength of this text lies in its clinical perspective. The authors always keep in mind that they are writing for practicing child neurologists and electroencephalographers.
Their own extensive experience in this field enables them to identify the most delicate and important issues. They remind the reader that the EEG is only one tool
—however essential—in the study of children with neurological diseases, and that the EEG has to be integrated with clinical information in order to be meaningful.
The approach of the authors is resolutely practical and clearly directed to practicing doctors and EEG technicians. The authors have limited the size, making the book
handy and easy to consult.
The practicality is underlined by a final chapter of wise advice about the pecularities of recording the EEG in young children, an experience
that will be useful for those who deal mostly with adult patients and find themselves uncomfortable in such circumstances.
This atlas will be a requirement for all electroencephalographers as well as for child neurologists. It will also be of interest to neurologists, pediatricians, and other
doctors who wish to understand the clinical use of EEG and its problems.
