  • Another first from Springer: the first reference to set out the fundamentals of developmental brain disorders of the nervous system that can affect fetuses, infants and young children
  • Takes readers through the essentials of diagnosis in developmental brain pathology and neuroimaging
  • Beautifully illustrated guide that is a joy to use
  • Comprehensive coverage of more than 100 disorders – all you need to know

Neuropathology is a key discipline, as it is the foundation for understanding developmental neuroscience, pediatric neurology, and neurosurgery.

Astonishingly, until now a comprehensive volume covering all aspects of pediatric neuropathology was not available.

Now, thanks to Springer, it does. This atlas is thus a unique, comprehensive reference providing material the fundamentals of developmental brain disorders of the nervous system that can affect fetuses, infants and young children, as well as the essentials of diagnosis in developmental brain pathology and neuroimaging.

With an emphasis on the characteristic morphology and a concise summary of clinical features, pathogenesis, and genetics, the generously illustrated atlas presents more than 100 disorders.

These include the common diseases of the peripheral nervous system as well as genetically determined metabolic and storage diseases.

The format could not be more user-friendly. Each disorder is explained in turn, with a succinct commentary as well as six illustrations.
