The past 40 years have seen remarkable advances in pediatric neurology and in many interfacing disciplines, especially medical imaging, genetics and infectious diseases. Yet the fundamentals of neurological examination and history remain essential in the accurate diagnosis of conditions affecting the childs nervous system. This book begins with a detailed discussion of neurological examination techniques. It covers the basic formulation of differential diagnoses and management using neuroradiology, electrophysiology, genetic and metabolic testing, including sampling cerebrospinal fluids, which is essential in the diagnosis and management of infectious conditions. This second section follows a problem-based approach that takes into account how diseases present in the real world. It employs practical, symptom- and sign-based strategies for virtually all conditions encountered by the practitioner. Throughout the authors emphasize patterns of disease and how recognizing them can be the first step to successful management of a child with a neurological problem. The text concludes with a detailed discussion of neurological emergencies, keeping in mind that such conditions often present first to someone other than to a pediatric neurologist. The book will be of interest to pediatric neurologists, pediatricians, primary care physicians, and emergency physicians in training and practice.

Genetic testing now plays an important role in the investigation of almost every child who is presented with one of the many commonly inherited disorders that make a major contribution to pediatric morbidity and mortality throughout the world. It can be difficult for even the most conscientious practitioner to keep abreast of developments and to appreciate both the significance and relevance of some of the major discoveries of recent years. The number of conditions that have been mapped or in which the causative gene has been isolated is vast. This book restricts coverage to the more common single-gene disorders that are likely to be encountered in general pediatric practice, with particular attention focused on those in which molecular analysis can play an important role in the diagnosis or management of a child and his or her family.

Neonatal Formulary is a unique publication that provides comprehensive guidance on the safe use of all the drugs prescribed during pregnancy and commonly given to babies during labour, delivery, and the first year of life.  

This new edition provides improved and detailed coverage of the many drugs that are given to women during pregnancy and during lactation where the baby’s welfare must be borne in mind as well as that of the mother. Thus the whole 'pregnancy through to parenthood' journey is treated as a continuous event with information about drug use and the effects of drugs at all stages of the development from fetus to infant. 

Containing far more detail than is available in the British National Formulary for Children and with a companion website featuring updates related to specific drugs and dosing, Neonatal Formulary is an essential guide for neonatologists, neonatal nurses, hospital pharmacists, obstetric staff, advanced nurse practitioners and for all health care professionals caring for pregnant women and their infants in the first year of life.
