The extensively updated third edition of "Pediatric Epilepsy: Diagnosis and Therapy" continues to be the definitive volume on the diagnosis, treatment, classification, and management of the childhood epilepsies.Written by nearly 100 international leaders in the field, this new edition progresses logically with major sections on the basic mechanisms of the disease, classification, epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, and age-related syndromes of epilepsy. The core of the new third edition is its completely updated section on antiepileptic drugs, including an in-depth discussion of dosage considerations, drug toxicity, teratogenicity, and drug interactions, with recommendations for optimal combinations when multiple drug therapy is required.Features unique to the third edition include: an expanded section on the basic science and mechanism of epilepsy; completely updated drug chapters, including newly released drugs and those in development; expanded chapters on vagus nerve stimulation and surgical treatment; and, an expanded section on co-morbidities.The third edition includes 21 new chapters, including discussions of: epileptic channelopathies; epileptogenic cerebral cortical malformation; epilepsy genes; etiologies and workup; evidence-based medicine issues related to drug selection; Levetiracetam; Sulthiame; Pregabalin; herbal medications; basic and advanced imaging; immunotherapy issues; vagus nerve stimulation therapy; cognitive and psychiatric co-morbidities and educational placement; and, psychosocial aspects of epilepsy.
