Main description

The expert, up-to-date guidance you need to identify, understand, and treat neurogenetic disorders in children

Written in a readily-accessible, highly-readable style, this unique reference offers a sound starting point and clinical step-by-step approach to treating the complex and often baffling neurogenetic diseases found in children. Conveniently organized by age groups from prenatal diagnosis to neonate to childhood, each chapter begins by describing symptoms (similar to the way a patient would present), and then guides you through confirming the diagnosis and choosing the appropriate course of therapy.

Completely updated to reflect the significant advances made following the discovery of the DNA sequence on the human genome, the Third Edition of Neurology of Hereditary Metabolic Diseases of Children clarifies the complicated genetics and biochemistry of these illnesses and will prove to be invaluable to the non-specialist and specialist alike.
