Part of the House Officer series, Weiner & Levitt's Pediatric Neurology, fourth edition has been extensively reorganized, thoroughly updated, and includes many algorithms and tables.
The new structure of this edition presents the book in six sections, and is consistent with the ways in which clinicians approach their patients. The first section offers introductory chapters under the heading of evaluation, and includes neurologic history, neuro exam, and localization. The bulk of the material is in two sections and covers common complaints and specific diseases, while the remaining sections cover drugs and diagnostic and neuropsychological tests.
