Vitamin Responsive Conditions in Paediatric Neurology: International Review of Child Neurology Series

Author Affiliations


Arch Neurol. 2003;60(12):1821-1822. doi:10.1001/archneur.60.12.1821-a

edited by Peter Baxter, 181 pp, London, England, MacKeith Press, 2001.

Peter Baxter's chapter on pyridoxine-dependent/responsive seizures is reason enough to read this book, but the 10 other chapters, which concisely cover a variety of vitamin-responsive conditions, make for an excellent review. Overall, the chapters are closely edited and provide an excellent historical overview and a minimum of biochemical minutiae, along with clear, well-referenced discussions of clinical presentations and interesting reviews of current controversies and research.
