Pediatric Neurology Clinical Assessment and Management, recently published by Springer, was edited by our chief Dr. E. Steve Roach. The book is intended to introduce child neurology to residents, students and others who are just getting started in the field. Roach commented “Information about childhood neurological disorders has increased exponentially in the last few years, making it difficult for people just starting to learn the field to know where to start. We challenged each contributing author to clearly summarize the essential information in their areas of interest for people who are just beginning a career in neurology. We see the book as a gift from one generation of child neurologists to the next.”
The book features a stellar array of contributing authors, including our own Drs. Kristina Julich (neurogenetics), Louisa Keith (infections of the nervous system), and Collin Swafford (stroke in children). Many of the chapters were contributed by senior physicians who have made major contributions to the study of pediatric neurology and the book will be a useful tool for both child and adult neurology residents throughout their training and as they prepare for their board examinations.
