Vitamin Responsive Conditions in Paediatric Neurology
Cambridge University Press, Jan 16, 2001 - Medical - 181 pages
This book, the latest in the International Child Neurology Review series, is the first authoritative synthesis of the role of vitamin treatments in children with neurological disorders.
It covers all the conditions seen in paediatric neurology that are treatable by vitamin supplementation and consists of up-to-date, concise reviews by an international group of experts in their specific fields. They cover: biotinidase deficiency; the role of vitamins in the developing nervous system, mitochondrial disorders and autism; homocysteinuria; conditions responsive to vitamin E or riboflavin; disorders of folic acid and vitamin B12 metabolism; folinic acid responsive seizures, and all aspects of pyridoxine-dependent and pyridoxine-responsive seizures.
It is the first time that clinical and data research in this field has been drawn together in one source, making available previously unpublished material. This will be a unique data resource for anyone involved in the care of children with vitamin-responsive neurological disorders.
