Epileptic syndromes in infancy, childhood and adolescence
Incluided : A DVD with new sequences completes each chapter!
The face of epileptology is changing and an aetiological approach made possible by advances in genetics has now been combined with the original syndrome-based system. A purely "electro-clinical" approach is now no longer valid in many cases.
This 5th edition of the "blue guide" provides an update on the most recent progress in the field. The structure has been changed slightly to provide chapters on the physiological, epidemiological, genetic and therapeutic approaches to this disorder. Nevertheless, the core of this book is still the description of epileptic syndromes.
The different backgrounds of the specialists contributing to this book ensure that its longstanding reputation for scientific quality and objectivity remains well-deserved.
