Preface

Pediatric neurology is considered a relatively new and evolving subspecialty. Over the last century, remarkable advances at both the basic and clinical levels have considerably improved our ability to evaluate and treat children with neurological disorders. These disorders are common and many cases seen by general pediatricians are primarily neurological accounting for up to 30% of all consultations to pediatrics with a high ratio of follow-up visits to new patients of about 3:1. Many medical students feel that their teaching experiences in neurology are not strong and only a small percentage actually select pediatric neurology as the first future career choice. This is not encouraging given the strong demand for this specialty in our region. Apart from large textbooks, limited pediatric neurology references are available for medical students and pediatric residents. It was for this reason that this manual was developed. In our experience, many of undergraduate medical students refer to deficient and oversimplified references that do not enable them to deal with pediatric neurology patients adequately. Please note that no financial contributions or any potential conflict of interest to any of the book chapters exist.
