Diseases of the Nervous System in Infancy, Childhood, and Adolescence.

Ford's textbook has been a standard for competence in the field of pediatric neurology as well as general neurology for over twenty years. The fourth edition maintains this high quality. The general format remains as in previous editions, each chapter dealing with a broad subject such as prenatal and developmental defects, heredofamilial and degenerative diseases, infections, neoplasms, and so on. Descriptions of various entities have been shifted from one area to another as new knowledge dictates.

A general comment and outline introduce each major division. This perspective orients the reader in a most informative fashion. The list of entities covered is exhaustive, including recently described syndromes, and in general each is treated accurately. The section on the examination of children and infants is serviceable, and a useful chapter is included on the standard neurologic examination with anatomic and physiologic correlations.

The book contains 30% more pages and cost 70% more
