About this book

Neuropathology is the foundation for understanding developmental neuroscience, pediatric neurology, and neurosurgery, but until now a comprehensive volume covering all aspects of pediatric neuropathology was not available. This atlas is thus a unique, comprehensive reference providing 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, including the common diseases of the peripheral nervous system as well as genetically determined metabolic and storage diseases. This compilation is a valuable resource for pathologists, pediatric neurologists and neurosurgeons, geneticists, neonatologists, radiologists, and pediatricians.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The aim is to summarize the categories of pediatric disease that affect the nervous system, along with current concise clinical, morphological, and biological data. The authors have succeeded in creating an up-to-date, richly illustrated reference atlas of pediatric neuropathology. The book is intended for students of neuropathology, neurology, and neuroscience. General neuropathologists with less frequent exposure to pediatric specimens will find this useful, as will pediatric neurologists." (Kathy L Newell, Doody's Book Review Service, September, 2007)

"It is a beautiful compendium, replete with over 1000 figures, all but a 100 in colour. … will be a useful guide for students of neuropathology, neurology and neuroscience … . If you like beautiful pictures and have a morpho-philic mind, this is the book for you."(John B. P. Stephenson, European Journal of Paediatric Neurology, Vol. 12 (3), 2008)

In a splendidly and lavishly illustrated atlas containing color plates of gross and microscopic neuropathology along with imaging, the authors show the reader the classic pathologic findings in pediatric neurologic diseases. … this atlas is highly recommended for those radiologists and institutions involved in pediatric care, particularly pediatric neurology." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, Vol. 29, June-July, 2008)
