Clinics in Developmental Medicine No. 168

This book describes the effects that different kinds of epilepsy in children can have on the child's behavior and cognitive development. It is mainly based on the authors' extensive studies over many years. These are described in the book, together with the available diagnostic methods and therapies. It is written so that the various professionals dealing with such children (pediatricians, neurologists, psychologists) can see their contribution and have a general view of the complex interrelation between medical psychological and educational problems in these children.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John Willis, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book discusses mental changes in epileptic children, using individual cases to supplement the literature in this difficult, multi-factorial problem.
Purpose: It gives a view of childhood epilepsy centered on the cognitive and behavioral consequences of these various disorders. This is a confusing topic with limited unequivocal data, for which the case-study approach is ideal. These issues are of great importance to patients' ability to live successfully, and the authors have elucidated them quite well.
Audience: This book targets students and practitioners with a specific interest in epilepsy. It raises more questions than it answers in this difficult area. It is not a guide to diagnosis and management.
Features: It covers most aspects of cognitive dysfunction in epilepsy: drug effects, underlying disease, the affects of EEG discharges and clinical seizures, several specific epileptic syndromes with cognitive effects, brain surgery, neuropsychological testing. It is thorough and thoughtful and case studies often illustrate points that cannot be made with available data.
Assessment: This is a superb book for a small audience, and a competing comparable text is not available. It clarifies the issues, documents our historical progress, and substantiates its points with case studies. The field awaits further study, much of which is suggested by the authors.
