Overview

Confidently diagnose and manage primary neurologic disorders of childhood with actionable, step-by-step assistance from Fenichel’s Clinical Pediatric Neurology! A signs-and-symptoms-based approach - with consideration of each presenting symptom in terms of differential diagnosis and treatment - mirrors the way you would typically evaluate and manage a patient. A practical and well-organized introduction to pediatric neurology, this is an ideal resource for board exam preparation, office use, and reference during residency.

  • Quickly identify the progression of each neurological disease. Extensive coverage clearly defines age at onset, course of illness, clinical features, and treatment options.
  • Evaluate and manage even the most difficult neurodegenerative disorders-including those caused by inborn errors of metabolism - with the aid of differential diagnosis tables and treatment algorithms.
  • Search crucial information at a glance. An organization by neurological signs and symptoms, together with a user-friendly, highly templated format allows for quick and easy reference.
  • Rely on it anytime, anywhere! Access the full text and more at www.expertconsult.com.
  • Discover the latest in pediatric neurology including important emerging topics such as new-generation pharmacological therapy for seizures and epilepsy, neuropathic pain, and auto-immune neurological disease; anti-NMDA antibody encephalopathy; diagnosis and management of neuro-psychogenic symptomatology; and assessment and management of chronic daily headaches.
  • Readily identify the more common and most treatable neurological disorders with the aid of highly templated chapters, and weighted differential diagnosis tables.
  • Confidently overcome the clinical challenges you’re likely to face with singular, authoritative guidance from Dr. J. Eric Piña-Garza - a longtime associate and protégé of Dr. Gerald Fenichel.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This well-written, concise, and practical book has been a valuable resource for those caring for pediatric patients with neurological disorders for decades, and this new edition continues that tradition."-David Hammond, MD(Nemours Chidlren's Clinic) Doody Review: 5 stars
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David N Hammond, MD (Nemours Children's Clinic)
Description: For decades, this has been a classic in pediatric neurology, with concise, practical information, organized by clinical presentation. The previous edition was published in 2009.
Purpose: This is a resource of practical information for physicians caring for pediatric patients with neurological disease. In an area of rapidly expanding knowledge, it succeeds admirably in maintaining its concise and clinically useful presentation of information.
Audience: The book will be very useful for residents and practitioners, and will be of interest to anyone with an interest in the field. Dr. Pina-Garza, who studied and practiced with Dr. Fenichel and succeeded him as division chief of pediatric neurology at Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, carries on as the author of this edition.
Features: Enhancing its practical clinical utility, the book is organized by presenting symptom. It is eminently readable and presents evidence-based information, guidelines, and standards where these are available. Where they are not, the author provides advice based on his own experience, further augmenting the practical utility of the book. Discussions of more recently described disorders, such as anti-N-Methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antibody encephalopathy, and newer agents, such as clobazam, are new to this edition. Readers also have access to the very useful, searchable, online version of the book.
Assessment: This well-written, concise, and practical book has been a valuable resource for those caring for pediatric patients with neurological disorders for decades, and this new edition continues that tradition.
