Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Korwyn Williams, MD, PhD (Phoenix Children's Hospital)
Description: In this book, pediatric movement disorder specialists review the physiology, pathophysiology, evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of children with movement disorders. After an overview of pertinent neuroanatomy, the book addresses individual disorders.
Purpose: The authors, all of whom are child neurologists with particular expertise in movement disorders, wished to produce a "high-quality text" because of the lack of such a resource. They have succeeded. As they note, pediatric movement disorders usually represent a small chapter or section in larger adult movement disorder textbooks. The authors' ease and skill in handling these pediatric disorders is evident throughout the book.
Audience: The authors envision that "readers at all levels of experience" would benefit from this book. The generous tables and illustrations are helpful for non-neurologists and, certainly, most healthcare providers would appreciate the chapters on tics. But, as the authors point out, one of the initial, practical tasks in evaluating a movement disorder is describing it. Many non-neurologists still shy away from this aspect of neurology, and I suspect that neurologists and neurology trainees would get the most out of this book.
Features: After a brief, but cogent, review of basal ganglia anatomy and descriptions of involuntary movements, the authors discuss diseases associated with the specific involuntary movements chapter by chapter (e.g., tic disorders, stereotypies, tremors, dystonias, ataxias). They specifically mention cerebral palsy, sleep movements, metabolic disorders with extrapyramidal movements, and psychogenic movement disorders. Most importantly, the book includes access to a web site with multiple, clear, narrated videos of the different movement disorders.
Assessment: This book fills a large gap in the literature on movement disorders for child neurologists. Much of the education of trainees in movement disorders is spotty and not system-based. The authors hone in on the underlying pathophysiology and outline rational treatment plans for these disorders in this well-written book that is appropriate for a trainee, but also educational for an attending.
From the Publisher
''This book, written in an objective and sensitive manner, puts many years of experience in abnormal movements into a valuable textbook, making practical knowledge available to anyone pursuing this complex branch of paediatrics. Importantly, not only is thequality of the chapters uniformly rather high, but the authors have also created a coherence that is difficult to find in other multi-author books.This remarkably well written book is a pleasure to read and to learn from. Movement Disorders in Childhood is highly recommended for medical students, residents, neuropaediatricians, adult neurologists, and paediatricians.I would encourage anyone interested in movement disorders to obtain a copy.'' Emilio Fernandez-Alvarez

Harvey S. Singer, M.D. is currently the Haller Professor of Pediatric Neurology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He graduated from Western Reserve University School of Medicine, did his pediatric training in Chicago and Cleveland, and his pediatric neurology residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, after which he remained on the faculty. Clinical research interests include movement disorders, especially Tourette syndrome, proposed autoimmune disorders, and stereotypic movements. His translational research-oriented laboratory focuses on autoimmune mechanisms in autism, PANDAS, the neurobiology of tics, and the pathophysiology of stereotypic movements in animal models. He has been the recipient of many federal and private grants. Dr. Singer has authored numerous original articles, chapters, and two books. He is the first recipient (2013) of the Child Neurology Society’s Blue Bird Clinic Training Program Directors award.

Donald Gilbert, MD, earned his Bachelor of Arts at Princeton University, where he majored in philosophy. He subsequently earned his MD at the University of Michigan and spent a year at the National Institutes of Health as a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Scholar. Dr. Gilbert did his pediatrics and neurology training at John Hopkins in Baltimore and is board certified in neurology with special competence in child neurology. Dr. Gilbert has an MS in Clinical Research Design and Statistical Analysis from the University of Michigan.

At Cincinnati Children's, Dr. Gilbert directs the Movement Disorders and Tourette's Syndrome Clinics, which specialize in evaluation and pharmacologic treatment of tics, chorea, tremor, dystonia, stereotypies, ataxia, and other movement disorders. Dr. Gilbert directs or participates in a number of single and multi-center studies into causes and treatments of Tourette's Syndrome, ADHD, and Movement Disorders. Dr. Gilbert directs the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Laboratory at CCHMC.
