Description

Diseases of the nervous system in infancy and childhood have a profound impact on the lives of patients and their families and are probably the most disruptive of all paediatric ailments. 'Aicardi' is thus the essential resource for all those with an interest in paediatric neurological diseases, including paediatricians, neurologists, child neurologists, and physicians in developmental medicine. The third edition has been extensively updated, with many chapters completely re-written, to incorporate the tremendous volume of new information since the previous edition, but remains as clinically orientated as its predecessors. Because of the enormous and wide-ranging amount of new material available, Aicardi and his co-editors have been joined by an eminent team of experts who have contributed many of the chapters.show more
