About this book

This book addresses current topics concerning Landau-Kleffner Syndrome (LKS) and related central auditory disorders from the perspectives of epidemiology, diagnosis, genetics and clinical treatment.

LKS is a rare childhood neurological disorder and manifests auditory agnosia as the central auditory verbal dysfunction. In many cases, LKS patients also suffer from epileptic seizures. 

The book is divided into two parts, the first of which outlines LKS from its historical background to clinical treatment. In turn, the second part examines current topics involving related central auditory disorders, for purposes of comparing them with LKS. The book offers a valuable resource for many specialists, such as pediatric neurologists, neuropsychologists, audiologists and epileptologists, with an interest in this field.
