Pediatric Neurology

Pediatric Neurology is a specialized branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions of children, infants and adolescents. It encompasses diseases and disorders of the spinal cord, brain, peripheral nervous system, autonomic nervous system, muscles and blood vessels. The conditions dealt with by pediatric neurologists vary considerably, from relatively simple disorders such as migraine or cerebral palsy through to more complex and rare conditions such as metabolic disease or neurodegenerative disorders. Pediatric neurologists act as consultants to primary care physicians, who may refer children to the neurologists for specialist care.
