Summary

Movement Disorders in Children brings the combined expertise and experience of two world-known authorities to the systematic and practical study of movement disorders in infancy and childhood. Emilio Fernandez-Alvarez and Jean Aicardi cover not only the well-known diseases, but also the less well-known conditions, such as "transient" and "paroxysmal" movement disorders. For the first time all the available information has been brought together in one volume and specifically directed towards the care of children with movement disorders.
