Description - Movement Disorders in Children by Emilio Fernandez-Alvarez

Movement Disorders in Children brings the combined expertise and experience of two world-known authorities to the systematic and practical study of movement disorders in infancy and childhood. Aimed at the clinicians and professionals who manage children with these disorders, Emilio Fernandez-Alvarez and Jean Aicardi cover not only the well-known diseases, but also the less well-known conditions, such as 'transient' and 'paroxysmal' movement disorders. It is the first time all the available information, currently spread throughout journals and individual chapters in other books, has been brought together in one volume and specifically directed towards the care of children with movement disorders. With its clinical emphasis, full coverage and extensive but selective references, this book will be essential reading for child neurologists, pediatricians and physiotherapists.
