Overview

This book provides a detailed account of intellectual, other neuropsychological and behavioral manifestations of general pediatric diseases. The conditions discussed include the whole range of pediatric diseases - genetic syndromes, other congenital conditions, metabolic, endocrine, gastrointestinal, infectious, immunologic, toxic, trauma, and neoplastic, as well as sensory disabilities including deafness and blindness. Although the book is not intended to discuss cognitive and behavioral manifestations of conditions usually considered to be primary neurological disease, some of those, including cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, myotonic dystrophy and epilepsy, are included.

Where possible, a "translational" approach is used, linking the behavioral and cognitive manifestations of these conditions, to the underlying structural, chemical or genetic abnormalities and their effect on the brain, and, in turn, on behavior and cognition. At the same time, included are significant psychosocial factors. Together, those factors have a major effect on patients' performance, including school performance, and on their families.

This book is unique in its extensive coverage of the major pediatric conditions and of the detailed neurological, neuropsychological and behavioral aspects of each condition.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher J Graver, PhD, ABPP-CN(Madigan Healthcare System)
Description: Although treating the physical aspects of disease is often foremost in the minds of patients and clinicians, the cognitive and behavioral consequences are often more enduring. This book explores these aspects of pediatric disease.
Purpose: The aim of this book is to review the literature on pediatric illness and the directly resulting cognitive and behavioral effects of brain dysfunction, as opposed to secondary emotional and social effects.
Audience: The authors do not indicate a particular audience, but a wide variety of readers will find this compelling, including child and school psychologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, pediatricians, and pediatric neurologists. The editors and authors are well known and respected in their fields.
Features: The book begins with a brief overview of common consequences of pediatric diseases. The remainder of the book is separated into major sections of medical diseases, including diseases of an autoimmune, cardiac, endocrine, gastrointestinal, genetic, hematologic, infection, metabolic, neurocutaneous, neonatal, neuroplastic, neuromuscular, pulmonary, renal, sensory, sleep, toxic, and traumatic nature. As is evident, there is vast coverage of pediatric disease for many of the most commonly encountered problems. Each of these chapters describes the disease and its pathogenesis and has extensive subsections on neuropsychological profiles and other neurobehavioral abnormalities. The neuropsychological sections address specific cognitive domains to provide readers with a typical neuropsychological profile. Academic achievement is sometimes treated as a separate section to provide more specific and detailed information about this aspect of development. When appropriate, the chapters also cover diagnosis and screening, neurologic and radiologic abnormalities, and treatment. The chapters are well organized, easy to read, and contain useful tables and figures, but the print quality could be better in some cases (e.g., neuroimaging). The references are abundant and current to last year.
Assessment: This is an essential guide to the neuropsychological and neurobehavioral consequence of pediatric diseases for healthcare providers working with a pediatric population. Psychologists and neuropsychologists in particular would be remiss to evaluate and/or treat children without this book readily at hand.
