Diseases of the Nervous System in Childhood (Clinics in Developmental Medicine)
This eagerly awaited new edition is comprehensively updated whilst retaining both the popular problem-solving approach and its familiar organisation and style. Notable advances receive careful coverage, from molecular genetics and imaging technology to ‘new’ diseases and important treatment developments.
From the reviews of the first edition: “A 1400 page textbook by a master clinician and teacher with unparalleled experience in both hospital and ambulatory child neurology has to be taken seriously and can be consulted with confidence” … “It is a user-friendly reference book that belongs on the shelf of child and adult neurologists, pediatricians, neurosurgeons, and general practitioners who need authoritative and complete information about the common and rare neurological disorders they are bound to encounter” … “readers get the feeling that Dr Aicardi is speaking directly to them and sharing the wisdom accrued from years of clinical experience and teaching” … “There is much to praise and little to criticise in this treatise.” New England Journal of Medicine
