What encompasses Pediatric Neurology?
A paediatric neurologist is a general paediatrician, who in addition to knowing children has a specialised knowledge of the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the nervous system. The paediatric neurologist knows enough about the systemic diseases in the paediatric age group, the peculiarities of the maturing brain, normal and abnormal development in children and the psychosocial aspects of sick children and their parents. The care of children will be shared between the primary paediatrician and the specialist.
Paediatric neurology concerns not only with Cerebral palsy and learning difficulties, but also with other neurological disorders in children. Paediatric neurologists diagnose, treat, and manage the following conditions from birth until 16 years:
Weakness, including cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and nerve muscle disorders
Developmental disorders, including delayed speech & motor milestones, intellectual disabilities (ID) and coordination issues
Seizure disorders, including seizures in newborns-, febrile convulsions and epilepsy
Any other antenatally detected problems concerning neurology
Medical aspects of head injuries and brain tumors.
Headaches, including migraine.
Behavioral disorders, including Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Attention deficit disorder(ADD), school failure and sleep problems.
