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 Neuroimaging

Charles Raybaud

editore: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins

pagine: 1124

This thoroughly updated fifth edition of "Pediatric Neuroimaging" is a highly illustrated text-reference that describes and illustrates the full range of pediatric disorders diagnosable by modern neuroimaging. Covering the diagnosis of brain, spinal, and head and neck disorders in the pediatric patient, this text is rooted in the principle that the proper interpretation of studies requires the acquisition of high-quality images and an understanding of the basic concepts of neuroembryology, normal development, and pathophysiology. Much coverage is given to the disorders seen in everyday practice. The emphasis is on CT and MRI, which are the optimal imaging modalities in children. The first two chapters describe useful imaging techniques in this patient population and the imaging manifestations of normal development, to distinguish that from manifestations of disease. The final ten chapters of this book are divided by groups of diseases, with numerous drawings and images that illuminate the underlying pathologic and embryologic/genetic bases of each disorder. The goal is provide a basic approach to groups of diseases, then offer detailed information about the clinical manifestations, underlying biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics and/or pathology of specific disorders. This book incorporates the essential concepts for obtaining good images and understanding normal development, which helps the reader to distinguish normal developmental changes from disease.

La riabilitazione del bambino con paralisi cerebrale in età scolare. Apprendimento, partecipazione e qualità di vita. Con DVD

a cura di Gruppo italiano paralisi cerebrale infantile

editore: Franco Angeli

pagine: 272

Il tema presentato dal GIPCI (Gruppo Italiano Paralisi Cerebrali Infantili) in questo volume propone a tutti gli operatori della riabilitazione l'approfondimento e la riflessione sulle difficoltà che il bambino con paralisi cerebrale affronta nell.età scolare, dai 6 ai 12 anni: l'apprendimento scolastico, la partecipazione alle attività proprie dell'età e la conquista dell'autonomia compatibile con la disabilità. Questi temi implicano il coinvolgimento sia dei medici e dei terapisti, sia della famiglia e di tutte le figure che ruotano intorno al bambino nel contesto scolastico e sociale: insegnanti, psicologi, pedagogisti ed educatori. Vengono trattati i problemi di apprendimento e di integrazione nei diversi quadri clinici di Paralisi Cerebrale e in particolare la necessità di rielaborare il progetto riabilitativo all'inizio dell'età scolare, e di concordare con le insegnanti i criteri di intervento. Altri contributi si riferiscono all'utilizzo della comunicazione aumentativa, al ruolo delle emozioni e della relazione nel lavoro riabilitativo e alla prassi secondo la family centered therapy nei servizi territoriali, per concludersi con la testimonianza di una madre. Secondo il consueto orientamento del GIPCI, vengono dapprima illustrati i contributi teorici con relazioni tematiche, mentre la seconda parte è dedicata alle implicazioni cliniche, con casi videoregistrati contenuti nell'allegato DVD.

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.

Childhood Epilepsy

Management from Diagnosis to Remission

Peter Camfield, Richard E. Appleton

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 166

Sixty percent of the epilepsies start in childhood, and most of the clinically significant and often life-changing aspects of the disease occur at this time. Childhood epilepsy is frequently a complex disorder, demanding integrated medical, educational and community services. Its treatment encompasses acute and disability medicine. The many types or syndromes of childhood epilepsy present both diagnostic and management challenges. Although many children with epilepsy will be referred to specialist units, the majority will initially present to paediatricians and paediatric neurologists. This book provides a practical, problem-oriented manual to help clinicians with diagnosis, evaluation and management. This book addresses epilepsy as an evolving disorder from presentation, through active disease and finally to either spontaneous remission or a chronic lifelong condition. Structured on the child's age at presentation, Childhood Epilepsy offers a practical overview for paediatricians, paediatric neurologists and primary care practitioners who treat children with epilepsy in their daily practice.

Fetal Behaviour

A Neurodevelopmental Approach

Christa Einspieler, Daniela Prayer
e altri

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)

pagine: 212

Clinics in Developmental Medicine No. 189 Fetal behaviour and movements not only give an insight into the developing brain, as an expression of neural activity, but are also necessary for the further development of neural structure and of other organs. This book presents an account of our current understanding of fetal behaviour as obtained through the assessment of fetal movements and behavioural states. The approach is based on the premises of developmental neurology, and provides important clues for the recognition of the age-specific functional repertoire of the nervous system. The companion DVD contains 26 movies using both ultrasound and dynamic MRI to illustrate the text. After presenting the historical background, the authors describe in detail the patterns of fetal movements and the mechanisms underlying them: They then discuss determinants of fetal behaviour, explaining the impact of different pregnancy-related and maternal factors on behaviour. Other chapters describe important aspects such as fetal responsiveness, laterality and development of handedness, and the behaviour of twins. The final chapter reviews research on the effects of various neurological conditions on fetal behaviour. The ability to assess the functional condition of the nervous system is invaluable to the clinician, as a considerable percentage of early brain damage is of prenatal origin. The structured and standardized description of fetal behavioural patterns proposed in this book improves our ability to understand the mechanisms underlying various aspects of behaviour in healthy fetuses and in those with brain lesions or other risk factors. Because of this, the volume will be of great interest not only to researchers in this field but also to all of those working in neonatology, paediatrics and paediatric neurology. Readership: Researchers in this field, neonatologists, paediatricians, paediatric neurologists, neurophysiologists, neuroscientists, obstetricians

Demyelinating Disorders of the Central Nervous System in Childhood

Dorothee Chabas Chanezon, Emmanuelle L. Waubant

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 292

Although multiple sclerosis and other disorders of myelin formation and repair are most commonly associated with adults, they can also occur in infants, children and adolescents. Up to 5 percent of those with MS experience symptoms before the age of 18, and the number of cases diagnosed is rising. There is a lack of awareness about these diseases in childhood, however, even amongst pediatric neurologists and MS specialists. Demyelinating Disorders of the Central Nervous System in Childhood provides comprehensive coverage of these diseases, highlighting throughout the differences between management in childhood and in adults. With sections dedicated to the diagnosis, course, treatment and biology of pediatric MS, detailed chapters on other childhood demyelinating diseases, including acute disseminated encephomyelitis, optic neuritis, acute complete transverse myelitis and neuromyelitis optica, are also provided. Essential reading for pediatric neurologists and MS specialists, this book will also be valuable reading for adult neurologists and pediatricians.

Inflammatory and Autoimmune Disorders of the Nervous System in Children

Angela Vincent, Russell C. Dale

editore: Mac Keith Press

pagine: 448

Inflammatory disorders of the nervous system, although individually uncommon, collectively make up 10-20% of acute paediatric neurology presentations and many are potentially treatable. Research into them is lagging behind adult research, but better diagnosis and often simple treatments could lead to substantial clinical benefit and reduction in long-term disability. This book provides a detailed and comprehensive summary of the childhood diseases that are, or are likely to be, caused by the immune system. The authors not only describe these disorders and their treatments comprehensively, helping pediatricians and pediatric neurologists to improve their understanding and recognition of the conditions, but also highlight recent and exciting developments that will be of considerable importance in the future.
