PEDIATRIC CONTRIBUTIONS TO NEUROLOGY

JAMA. 1957;165(17):2161-2162. doi:10.1001/jama.1957.02980350019004
Abstract

The neurology of children has been an important phase of pediatrics from the beginning. Pediatricians as early as the 15th century were much concerned with diseases like epilepsy and meningitis, and symptoms like convulsions, strabismus, and incontinence were considered in early textbooks. The contributions of pediatricians to knowledge of the nervous system since that time have been numerous and important.
