This title has been developed with the International Child Neurology Association to provide information on all common CNS infections. It covers almost all CNS infections commonly seen in children across the world including those in developed and resource poor countries. It provides concise, state of the art overview of viral, bacterial, tubercular, fungal, parasitic and many other infections of the CNS. In addition involvement of the CNS secondary to other infections or vaccines has also been briefly covered. A chapter on Principles of Management of CNS Infections provides a practical and pragmatic approach to management of CNS infections in general. A chapter on Neuroimaging of CNS Infections and A brief account of Febrile Seizures in Children is included.

The book is intended to be of practical use to residents, physicians, paediatricians and paediatric neurologists across the globe. It should be particularly helpful in providing important information in an easily accessible and comprehensive format, with supporting references.
