Referred to as the "gold standard" in pediatric neurology, the third edition of this two-volume reference has been updated, expanded and reorganized to include the latest in treatment of epilepsy, seizures and drug therapies, coma, head injuries, as well as genetics and their related metabolic conditions. With detailed coverage from birth to adolescence, content is accessible from four directions: history and physical exams; lab tests; signs and symptoms; and disease. New coverage includes the latest imaging technologies, guidelines for evaluation, DSM-IV, and a chapter on how to best utilize the Internet and other information service providers.

Review Comments on 2nd Edition: "Pediatric Neurology remains to child neurology what Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine is to internal medicine - no medical library should be without it. Certainly no child neurologist, developmentalist, neurosurgeon, or adult neurologist who occasionally treats children will be without it. " -Gerald F. Tremblay, MD in JAMA 8/24/94 "Swaiman is a highly regarded clinician who has set the standard for the clinical approach to pediatric neurology problems. He has outlined the material in such a way as to be concise, readable, and very useful. He has focused on the clinician who is interested in the neurological problems of children and has included material that is useful for pediatricians, obstetricians, developmentalists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and neurologists alike. Also I have often recommended this text to nurse practitioners, (clinical) nurse specialists, and family practice residents. Swaiman has obtained contributions from most of the world's experts.., and has put their chapters together in a very consistent and readable manner. . . . The reference lists are manageable and the index is very complete." -William D. Goldie, MD in Journal of Perinalology, Vol. 15, No. 4, 1995.
