Developmental neuropathology relates to the wide range of disorders affecting the developing brain or pre– and post–natal life, with emphasis on the genetic and molecular mechanisms involved. This book provides a practical guide to diagnosing and understanding these disorders affecting this vulnerable population and potentially stimulates further advances in this exciting area. It also addresses the controversies in inflicted head injury in infants.

The fourth major title published in association with the International Society of Neuropathology (ISN), Developmental Neuropathology offers in–depth chapter coverage of brain development; chromosomal changes; malformations; secondary malformations and destructive pathologies; developmental vascular disorders; acquired metabolic and exogenous toxins; metabolic disorders; Rett syndrome and autism; and infectious diseases.

  • Clinical, disease–oriented approach to the pathology and genetics developmental neuropathology
  • Fuses classical and contemporary investigative approaches
  • Includes genetic and molecular biological pathogeneses
  • Fully illustrated
  • Approved and endorsed by International Society of Neuropathology

Developmental Neuropathology is the perfect book for practicing neuropathologists, pediatric pathologists, general pathologists, neurologists, and geneticists in deciphering the pathology and pathogenesis of these complex disorders affecting the nervous system of the embryo, fetus, and child.
