Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Michelle A. Melyn, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the second opportunity for those interested in reviews of pertinent topics within child neurology. This book is compiled from Pediatric Neurology Briefs, summarizing selected abstracts from 1991 to 1993. (The first book, published in 1991, included articles from 1987 to 1990.)
Purpose: The purpose is to present current information in abstract form on a variety of issues, updating the reader's database regarding etiology, pathology, treatment, and prognosis of diseases of the nervous system within the pediatric population. Indeed the author achieves this goal by reviewing many major topics (i.e., epilepsy, trauma) as well as some atypical categories (nutrition, diet).
Audience: Physicians primarily interested in child neurology as well as other professionals will find this book a useful reference.
Features: The book is organized by chapter, each devoted to a specific topic. All chapters are introduced by the author or a guest contributor. The abstracts within a topic are organized chronologically. Following each abstract is a pertinent commentary. The index provides a good cross-reference.
Assessment: In general physicians and other professionals in the field of child neurology will have the opportunity, with this book, to survey an extensive presentation of current articles on numerous subjects rather easily and concisely.
