Within each of its conveniently structured chapters, readers will find a general description of the disease or disorder, its epidemiology, etiology, clinical synopsis, neurological manifestations, diagnosis, differential diagnosis and therapy.
Comprehensive yet concise, The Neurological Manifestations of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Immunodeficiency Syndromes is an ideal guide for pediatricians, primary care physicians and subspecialists to the complex relationships between infectious diseases, immunodeficiency syndromes and the neurological process.
