Neurocutaneous Syndromes Book Review:

Neurocutaneous Syndromes provides the most updated and comprehensive resource on the disorders that lead to the growth of tumors in various parts of the body, those caused by the abnormal development of cells in an embryo and characterized by the presence of tumors in various parts of the body and eyes, including the nervous system, and by certain differences in the skin. The most common neurocutaneous syndromes include, neurofibromatosis, Sturge-Weber syndrome, tuberous sclerosis, ataxia-telangiectasia, and von Hippel-Lindau disease. Symptoms vary widely and while present early may not express until later in life. As molecular medicine and genetic science is continuing to impact our understanding of neurocutaneous syndromes, this book also includes the latest molecular and genetic science. Provides a comprehensive coverage of neurocutaneous syndromes Details the latest molecular and genetic science related to neurocutaneous syndromes Presents a focused reference for clinical practitioners and the neuroscience, clinical neurology, and neurogenetics research communities Includes updated sections on the latest molecular and genetic science

Neurocutaneous Disorders Book Review:

Neurocutaneous syndromes and hemangiomas encompass a substantial proportion of congenital or hereditary disorders, and present themselves through variable clinical features. Though often complex and multi-systemic, these disorders can mostly be diagnosed by simple visual inspections and strong clinical expertise. The purpose of this book is to compile in a single volume a comprehensive review of the historical perspective, the clinical features, the current knowledge concerning the pathogenesis, and the diagnostic and therapeutic strategies associated with these challenging disorders. Strong emphasis throughout is given on the biochemical, molecular, and genetic basis of these syndromes. The international editorial team have drawn upon contributions from colleagues, and from fully referenced information from thousands of articles, thus providing the reader with an outstanding up-to-date resource for the diagnosis and treatment of neurocutaneous disorders.

Neurocutaneous Diseases Book Review:

Neurocutaneous Diseases is a systematic presentation limited to diseases that affect both of the nervous system and skin of humans. Neurologists and dermatologist will find knowledge of these diseases of real clinical value. Many of the diseases described in these pages do not affect the skin and nervous system simultaneously. Many of these diseases, mostly not well understood, may stimulate new lines of scientific inquiry, for understanding of a pathologic change in easily accessible dermal cells that promises to clarify a more recondite brain disease. This book is organized into five main pa ...

Neurocutaneous Syndrome in Development Age Book Review:

Neurocutaneous syndromes unify a group of rare neurological disorders in which the initial identification depends on simple visual diagnosis. They include a large group of neurological disorders (neurofibromatosis type I, tuberous sclerosis complex, Sturge-Weber Syndrome, Von Hippel Lindau syndrome, hypomelanosis of Ito, and others) which feature cutaneous and ocular lesions, brain malformations, central and peripheral brain tumours, mental retardation, seizures, and psychiatric problems. In the past few years our knowledge of neurocutaneous syndromes has increased dramatically. Detailed information about the clinical features, natural history, and management of these complex multisystem disorders, and new data on the genetics of these conditions, has provided insight into their classification, pathophysiology, molecular biology, and genotype–phenotype correlations.

Practical Psychodermatology Book Review:

Skin disease can be more than skin deep Our skin is one of the first things people notice about us. Blemishes, rashes, dry, flaky skin – all these can breed insecurity, even suicidality, even though the basic skin condition is relatively benign. Skin disease can lead to psychiatric disturbance. But symptoms of skin disease can also indicate psychological disturbance. Scratching, scarring, bleeding, rashes. These skin disturbances can be the result of psychiatric disease. How do you help a dermatological patient with a psychological reaction? How do you differentiate psychological causes from true skin disease? These are challenges that ask dermatologists, psychiatrists, psychologists and other health care specialists to collaborate. Practical Psychodermatology provides a simple, comprehensive, practical and up-to-date guide for the management of patients with psychocutaneous disease. Edited by dermatologists and psychiatrists to ensure it as relevant to both specialties it covers: History and examination Assessment and risk management Psychiatric aspects of dermatological disease Dermatological aspects of psychiatric disease Management and treatment The international and multi-specialty approach of Practical Psychodermatology provides a unique toolkit for dermatologists, psychiatrists, psychologists and other health care specialists needing to care for patients whose suffering is more than skin deep.

Cerebral Palsy Book Review:

This third edition systematically reviews recent developments in the diagnosis and evidence-based treatment of cerebral palsy, a consequence of foetal and early infant brain damage resulting in lifelong disabilities with a range of clinical characteristics. The first part discusses the definition, aetiology, classification, imaging and neuropathology, while the second focuses on the management of the individual challenges that children with cerebral palsy face, such as spasticity, dyskinesia, feeding problems and scoliosis. Based on the diverse characteristics of cerebral palsy, children require care from various specialists, including neuro-paediatricians, orthopaedists, psychologists, epidemiologists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. This work was written by an international team of such specialists, providing a comprehensive mix of perspectives and expertise.

Neuroacanthocytosis Syndromes Book Review:

Neuroacanthocytosis Syndromes is the first comprehensive review of a field that has not yet received the attention it deserves. Affecting the brain as well as the circulating red cells, these multi-system disorders in the past had often been mistaken for Huntington's disease. Recent breakthroughs have now identified the molecular basis of several of these. This volume grew out of the first international scientific meeting ever devoted to neuroacanthocytosis and provides in-depth information about the state of the art. Its thirty chapters were written by the leading authorities in the field to cover the clinical as well as the basic science perspective, including not only molecular genetics but also experimental pharmacology and cell membrane biology, among others. The book vehemently poses the question of how the membrane deformation of circulating red blood cells relates to degeneration of nerve cells in the brain, the basal ganglia, in particular. It provides a wealth of data that will help to solve an intriguing puzzle and ease the suffering of those affected by one of the neuroacanthocytosis syndromes.

Common Neurosurgical Conditions in the Pediatric Practice Book Review:

This unique title is designed to illustrate and foster how a closer working relationship between pediatricians and subspecialists can make childhood medicine work more seamlessly. Despite the common lack of training for pediatricians in pediatric neurosurgery, they are challenged almost daily with caring for children with neurologic conditions. Common Neurological Conditions in the Pediatric Practice is replete with a wide range of instructional case vignettes and is organized into sections that loosely approximate the neurologic development of a child and address issues that are commonly encountered. The first section reviews neurologic development and birth related trauma commonly seen in the neonatal intensive care unit. The second part addresses findings commonly encountered by a pediatrician in a child’s first month of life. The third section is a comprehensive review of hydrocephalus. Part four describes state of the art imaging techniques for the central nervous system in children, from pre-natal ultrasound through MRI and CT; and the fifth part consists of individual explorations of common neurosurgical conditions that many pediatricians are uncomfortable managing, including brain tumors, spasticity, and vascular lesions to use as a reference tool when caring for a complex neurosurgical patient. Finally a series of chapters related to head trauma, including sections on non-accidental trauma and concussion management, completes the text.
