- The premier textbook of clinical child neurology
- Comprehensive descriptions of the neurological disorders of the neonate, infant, child and adolescent
- Third edition comprehensively revised and updated
Diseases of the nervous system in infancy and childhood have a profound impact on the lives of patients and their families and are probably the most disruptive of all paediatric ailments. Aicardi′s Diseases of the Nervous System in Childhood is thus the essential resource for child neurologists, neurologists, paediatricians, and physicians in developmental medicine. The third edition has been extensively updated to incorporate the tremendous volume of new information since the previous edition, but remains as clinically oriented as its predecessors. Because of the enormous and wide–ranging amount of new material available, Aicardi and his co–editors have been joined by an eminent team of international experts who have contributed many of the chapters.
Reviews of the second edition
"This book is one of the best of its kind and, as with the first edition, will continue to take first place on the shelf of all paediatric neurologists. It is also highly readable, and will remain the ′friendly companion at the bedside′ that Professor Aicardi aims for."
from a review in Journal of Neurology
"This text is an excellent investment for any paediatric department as a bench book: trainees will rely on it for postgraduate examinations and many physicians in general and neurological practice of children and adults will covet the copy that is now at my right hand."
