Description

Confidently diagnose and manage primary neurologic disorders of childhood with actionable, step-by-step assistance from Fenichel’s Clinical Pediatric Neurology! A signs-and-symptoms-based approach - with consideration of each presenting symptom in terms of differential diagnosis and treatment - mirrors the way you would typically evaluate and manage a patient. A practical and well-organized introduction to pediatric neurology, this is an ideal resource for board exam preparation, office use, and reference during residency.
  • Quickly identify the progression of each neurological disease. Extensive coverage clearly defines age at onset, course of illness, clinical features, and treatment options.
  • Evaluate and manage even the most difficult neurodegenerative disorders—including those caused by inborn errors of metabolism – with the aid of differential diagnosis tables and treatment algorithms.
  • Search crucial information at a glance. An organization by neurological signs and symptoms, together with a user-friendly, highly templated format allows for quick and easy reference.
  • Rely on it anytime, anywhere!

Foreword
I have had the great pleasure of writing this text through most of my academic career. It has been widely received, translated into five other languages, and served as my continuing medical education. Once retired, I expected to stop writing the text, which requires active patient experience. Dr. Piña-Garza served as my trainee, then long-term faculty associate and friend, and now as my successor as Division Chief of Pediatric Neurology in Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. No one is better qualified to carry on the tradition. I thank my readers and publishers for making the book a success and assure them that the text will continue in the same spirit.

Gerald M. Fenichel, M.D., Professor of Neurology, emeritus, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, Tennessee
Preface
In 1988, I read the first edition of Clinical Pediatric Neurology during my internship, and was struck by how different it was from other medical texts. The concept of organizing the book based on ‘chief complaints’ rather than ‘disease categories’ made intuitive sense to me, as this is how patients present to the clinician. That book proved to be an invaluable resource to me during my development as a pediatrician. Almost three years later I decided to do an elective with the author, Dr Gerald M. Fenichel, and this encounter confirmed my desire to pursue my child neurology training under his supervision. Dr Fenichel became not only a teacher, but a true mentor and a great friend. We practiced together for 16 years, and in 2010 he honored me with the continuation of this text.
This edition strives to maintain the goal of providing practical information for physicians who care for children and adolescents with neurological disease. Guidelines, standards of practice and evidence-based medicine are included whenever possible, and advice from our own experience and within our own biases is given when this information is not available.
Writing the new edition of this book has been a great learning experience for me. Reviewing the medical literature, organizing my thoughts and cataloguing my experiences have allowed me to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the field. I hope this translates into a benefit for our readers and, most importantly, for their patients.

Dedication
To my parents, Jose Piña Mendez and Maria Edelia Garza Gonzalez and all my family, who gave me so much love, guidance, emotional and spiritual nourishment. Thanks to their example, I was able to become who I am today.
To my beautiful wife Kaitlin C. James and my adorable daughter Josephine Anna Maria Piña-James, the loves of my life, who make me, appreciate every minute of my life.
Last but not least to my mentor, Gerald M. Fenichel, for the opportunity to continue his great work.
