La diagnosi e il trattamento dei disordini del movimento in età pediatrica. Distonia, corea, mioclono, parkinsonismo e tic

a cura di N. Nardocci, E. Fernandez-Alvarez

editore: Franco Angeli

pagine: 224

L'avanzamento delle conoscenze riguardo alle basi biologiche, la diagnosi e il trattamento dei principali Disordini del Movimento (DM) del bambino è stato rilevante negli ultimi anni. La diagnosi clinica tuttavia risulta spesso difficile, per la variabilità della fenomenologia clinica e lo spettro eziologico dei DM in età pediatrica. L'argomento viene trattato in quattro sezioni, a partire dalle tematiche emergenti, quali il ruolo dell'autoimmunità e gli aspetti psicopatologici. Seguono la fenomenologia, diagnosi e i principi di trattamento delle principali classi dei DM, e gli sviluppi sul ruolo degli strumenti diagnostici e riabilitativi (neuroimaging, elettrofisiologia, genetica, scale di valutazione e misure di outcome, neuropsicologia). In conclusione, l'analisi delle singole sindromi cliniche che comportano progressi specifici: l'emiplegia alternante, le neurodegenerazioni con accumulo di ferro, i DM di natura psicogenetica, le stereotipie, lo stato distonico. Il libro si rivolge a medici specialisti in ambito neurologico, neuropsichiatrico infantile, neurofisiologico e riabilitativo: i lettori potranno reperire i dati più recenti riguardo agli aspetti neurobiologici dei principali DM in età pediatrica, conoscere i fenotipi delle principali condizioni a espressività distonica, coreica e mioclonica, elaborare il processo diagnostico nelle sue varie fasi.

Pediatric Neurology

A Color Handbook

Denise M. Nielsen, Francis M. Filloux
e altri

editore: Manson Publishing Ltd

pagine: 352

Recognizing patterns of disease can be the first step to successful management of the child with a neurological problem; this is emphasized by the authors throughout the book. Their concise, precise account reflects the remarkable recent advances in pediatric neurology and related disciplines, while stressing the fundamentals of clinical examination and history taking in reaching an accurate diagnosis. The book begins with a detailed discussion of neurological examination techniques and the basic formulation of differential diagnoses and management, using neuroradiology, electrophysiology, cerebrospinal fluids, genetic and metabolic testing. The second section of the book follows a problem-based approach, just as diseases present in the real world. It employs practical, symptom- and sign-based strategies for virtually all conditions encountered by the practitioner. The final section on neurological emergencies recognizes that such conditions present first to someone other than a pediatric neurologist. This new color handbook is illustrated throughout by a wealth of top-quality clinical photos and imaging, and is of interest to pediatric neurologists, general pediatricians, primary care physicians and emergency physicians, in training and practice.

The Spastic Forms of Cerebral Palsy

Adriano Ferrari, Giovanni Cioni

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 378

by A. Berthoz The publication of this volume, edited by Adriano Ferrari and Giovanni Cioni, is a major event for several reasons. Most importantly, it concerns an area of child pathology that has yet to be fully explored. In this context, the authors' efforts to compile their observations as well as those of other clinicians and to elaborate their theories have resulted in an ess- tial step in the field of cerebral palsy (CP). The originality of the book is its very clear focus, while at the same time the authors have encouraged the book's contributors to express their ideas and personal opinions. This leads sometimes to redundancy, but this is precisely one of the benefits of the book - cause the same problems are then exposed from different points of views. The reader is thus spared the normative attempts of many other pathology books, in which the compl- ity of a given disease is hidden by the authors' or editors' desire to impose a rigid taxo- my or epidemiology.

A Handbook of Neurological Investigations in Children

John B. P. Stephenson, Mary D. King

editore: Mac Keith Press

pagine: 256

Neurological disorders in children are common: families want to know what is wrong, why it happened, and whether it will happen again. Management and treatment depend on establishing the diagnosis, which usually requires investigations, but the number of possible neurological investigations is now very large indeed, and uncritical investigations may be seriously misleading and often costly. This book, based on the authors' vast combined personal experience, gives practical guidance on how to target any specific condition with the minimum of tests. Part 1 is a brief distillation of advice on clinical history and examination, introducing the problems that beset those who deal with neurological disorders in childhood. Part 2 outlines the investigations available to solve these diagnostic problems. Part 3 takes a problem-oriented approach to the most appropriate investigations in the various clinical scenarios that may present to the practitioner: the starting point is the patient's presentation, not the diagnosis. Throughout, vignettes of real cases help to illustrate the use of the tests in different clinical situations. The authors co-wrote the hugely popular Handbook of Neurological Investigations ("the Blue Book") 20 years ago. This new book, while closely following the highly successful approach of the earlier title, is thoroughly up to date, with fresh material, new case vignettes, and additional investigations covered.

Neurodevelopmental Disabilities

Clinical and Scientific Foundations

Michael Shevell

editore: Mac Keith Press

pagine: 504

Neurodevelopmental disabilities are a common problem in child health. This book takes a comprehensive approach to addressing these often challenging clinical diagnoses. In particular, it focuses on the two most common of childhood neurodevelopmental disabilities: global developmental delay and developmental language impairment. It seeks to put forward our present conceptualization of these entities as well as their proper evaluation and assessment and diagnosis from a variety of perspectives. It also provides details on our current understanding of the scientific basis of these disorders and their underlying causes. Issues related to medical management, rehabilitation, and eventual outcomes are also addressed in a detailed way. The book has wide appeal to those in paediatrics, developmental paediatrics, child neurology, and paediatric rehabilitation. Its geographic appeal includes both developed and developing nations as some chapters are devoted to the particular issues faced in underdeveloped countries. The book's focus on both clinical and scientific aspects is invaluable in this field. It also provides extensive information in a single source relating to often-overlooked areas such as medical management, rehabilitation, public policy, and ethics.

Non-Epileptic Childhood Paroxysmal Disorders

Francis J. DiMario

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 400

This is a book written for those of us who evaluate the many quirks and behaviors encountered in the lives of developing children. The number of important pathologic conditions that befall this age group is staggering. However, equally staggering is the number of episodic and often benign or developmentally programmed paroxysmal events encountered in this population. The nature of these episodic events in many circumstances leads to their erroneous identification as epileptic in nature. It is my hope that this book will serve as a compendium of those episodically manifest entities often uniquely observed in childhood. The book is organized with some foundations in terminology and an in depth analysis of epidemiology of many of these disorders. As best possible, epidemiologic data are compiled with incidence and prevalence figures provided for comparisons. Discussion on the deductive approach to their clinical assessment is provided along with emphasis on the diagnostic clues contained within the descriptive and observational information provided during clinical evaluation. A categorization of the differential features and ages of presentation are provided as a means to help direct logical diagnostic considerations. Subsequent chapters are organized by major topic (i.e.) Syncopes, Sleep Phenomena, Somatizaion, Factitious Illness, Movement Disorders, and Migraine Syndromes. Each chapter provides discourse on the general principles of underlying pthophysiologic mechanisms and curent knowledge about the chapter topic under discussion. Specific clinical entities encompassed within the general topic are then discussed individually with particular attention to their clinical descriptions and presentations, natural history, particular pathophysiology, genetics, pertinent laboratory, and treatments. The text is aplified by pertinent tables highlighting diagnostic criteria where this applies and reference information where needed. The text is generously referenced to encompass the most relevant information available.
