This book written in Spanish deals with sleep in children. The first part describes the mechanism and physiology of the normal sleep reflex; then pathologic variations. These include all forms of epilepsy, narcolepsy, piknolepsy and such disorders. They are all illustrated by clinical observations taken from the author's clinic. There is also an excellent bibliography of 212 artciles. The subject matter is well organized, and the viewpoint taken is interesting.
