In the first two years of life, several important and interlinked neurological functions develop; this is a decisive developmental period.
Neurological disorders arising in early childhood therefore require special attention and should be defined precisely. To be understood and managed correctly, these disorders (epilepsy, cerebral lesions, tumours, nerve damage, etc.) must be considered as a whole.
By compartmentalizing the disorders and only focusing on a certain number of them, physicians run the risk of neglecting others which could have been useful in reaching a more accurate diagnosis.
Written by neuropaediatricians with the aim of sharing their knowledge, this book is the only one of its kind to date to explore, in such detail, all the factors which have the potential to perturb neurological development.
