Completely revised for its Second Edition, this text is geared to residents and fellows training in child and adolescent psychiatry and those preparing for board examinations in both general and child psychiatry. The book covers common neurologic disorders seen in the pediatric population, their presentation, including psychiatric symptoms, and their workup, diagnosis, and treatment. Coverage includes psychiatric comorbidities in pediatric neurologic disorders and psychiatric side effects of medications used to treat pediatric neurologic disorders.

Case presentations demonstrate the diagnostic approach to patients in pediatric neurology and on the interface of pediatric neurology and psychiatry. Practice questions offer excellent review for board certification and recertification examinations. A glossary is also included.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Arshdeep S. Jawandha, MBBS (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This much needed second edition of an overview of the clinical presentations, assessment, and treatment of neurological conditions appears after a gap of 16 years.
Purpose: The intent is to review developments in the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with neurological illnesses that practicing psychiatrists may encounter in their practice.
Audience: The authors, neurologists and psychiatrists, have collaborated on this book intended for psychiatrists treating children and adolescents. Child psychiatry residents and nurses should familiarize themselves with this material as well, to help them gain knowledge and thus comfort in discussing neurological conditions.
Features: A chapter on the neurological examination with a tabulated interpretation of findings begins the book. The liberal inclusion of MRI and CT scan image plates in the neuroimaging chapter helps with comprehension and memorization. Other chapters detail neurological conditions, providing basic information followed by brief mention of emerging treatments, such as habit reversal therapy, rTMS, and deep brain stimulation for tic disorders and VNS and surgery for seizures. Tables provide easy access to information, e.g. on psychotropic effects of AEDs and interactions of AEDs with psychotropic medications. The chapter on sleep disorders contains useful polysomnograph tracings and is particularly welcome since these disorders often go unaddressed. The chapter on functional neuroimaging largely focuses in fMRI in ADHD children, almost ignoring other conditions such as OCD. Neurofibromatosis skin lesion plates and imaging studies are very useful, but they would have been even better if they had been in color. The chapter on mental retardation is somewhat lacking in detail, although it is augmented by a small tabulated resource list. With an emerging population of HIV-infected children, the chapter on the neurobehavioral aspects of pediatric HIV is appropriate. Case examples are included after each chapter and at the end of the book for better understanding. A particular strong point is the inclusion of numerous multiple choice questions at the end of each chapter for interactive learning and self testing.
Assessment: This book provides good source material for the neurology section on the child psychiatry written board examination. In fact, the brevity of the presentation, the accuracy of the detail, and the clinical usefulness make it a must read.
