Completely revised for its Second Edition, this text is geared to residents and fellows training in child and adolescent psychiatry and those preparing for board examinations in both general and child psychiatry. The book covers common neurologic disorders seen in the pediatric population, their presentation, including psychiatric symptoms, and their workup, diagnosis, and treatment. Coverage includes psychiatric comorbidities in pediatric neurologic disorders and psychiatric side effects of medications used to treat pediatric neurologic disorders. Case presentations demonstrate the diagnostic approach to patients in pediatric neurology and on the interface of pediatric neurology and psychiatry. Practice questions offer excellent review for board certification and recertification examinations. A glossary is also included.
