Abstract

This book was written primarily for practitioners and interns. The nervous disorders of infancy and childhood are discussed from a purely practical point of view. An attempt has been made to consider more completely those disorders which are ordinarily accorded very little space in the standard textbooks, such as, hyperkinesia, disorders of speech and articulation and the management of cerebral palsies. The common neurologic diseases about which a great deal has been written in the past are discussed briefly, but the fundamental principles are well covered. The prognosis of each condition is thoroughly presented, and the treatment and management that can be undertaken by the practitioner are completely discussed. Very little space is devoted to pathologic changes.

The first part of the book includes injuries sustained at birth, cranial abnormalities, inflammatory diseases of the nervous system, abiotrophies, myopathies and convulsions. The latter half of the publication is composed of chapters
