The third edition of a benchmark reference, Epilepsy in Childhood and Adolescence has been completely updated to include information on the latest pharmacological, alternative, and surgical treatments for epilepsy in children and adolescents. Presenting the information in a convenient tabular format, the book reviews the impact of epilepsy that develops in childhood. After defining what is and what is not a seizure, the authors guide you through the classification of seizures encountered at different stages of maturation. The book provides several chapters on seizures in the neonatal period, febrile seizures, and the management of status epilepticus. It covers the pharmacology of antiepileptic drugs and their rational selection for use in specific epileptic syndromes and medically intractable epilepsy and guidelines for evaluating patients who would benefit from other forms of therapy including epilepsy surgery. The authors highlight the transition from childhood to adulthood and the impact this has on the management of the disease. Drawing on personal experience, they explore a practical approach to the diagnosis of the various causes of epilepsy, medical and surgical management, and when to refer the patient to an epilepsy specialist or clinic.
