Colin Kennedy,

Principles and Practice of Child Neurology in Infancy, 2nd Edition: Care and Management

The scope of the book includes all neurological problems in infancy. In the first half, it sets out in a succinct format the principles of working with families, of clinical assessment, of the use of investigations and treatments, and of evidence-based medicine. The second, symptom-based half of the book provides detailed guidance on the practice of child neurology in infancy. The authors are distinguished experts drawn from all over Europe. The contributors have approached their chapters using an accessible, didactic style and consistent organization of material. The emphasis throughout is on clinical methods, the use of appropriate investigations and treatments, and the avoidance of unnecessary or potentially harmful interventions. For quick reference, all chapters feature boxes highlighting key messages, common errors, and when to worry. The book is designed to be carried round as a handy reference.

The second edition, while remaining portable, is more comprehensive.

•Includes four additional chapters (The neurological examination, Genetic testing, Inherited metabolic encephalopathies of infancy, and Infant sleep and behaviour) and five new sections within chapters (Vaccination, Immune-mediated encephalitis, Malaria, Zika virus infection, and intracranial space-occupying lesions).

•Major redrafts of three other chapters (Promoting child development, Microcephaly, and The floppy infant) and all chapters have been updated.

•The number of hyperlinks to on-line resources has been substantially increased and the second edition also constitutes the content of two on-line courses, which include questions and reflective activities for every chapter. One course is based on the ‘Principles’ and the other on the ‘Practice’ sections of the book.
