Cerebral palsy is a neurological condition caused by damage to the brain, which normally occurs before, during or soon after birth. Symptoms vary depending on the type of cerebral palsy – some children have difficulty walking, others may be profoundly disabled and require lifelong care (NHS Choices).

This book is a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and management of cerebral palsy for neurologists, paediatricians and postgraduate trainees. Divided into fifteen chapters, it guides readers through every step of the condition, from its history, epidemiology and classification, to its clinical features, diagnosis, and management, including a chapter on the probability of walking.

This practical manual includes more than 80 images, diagrams and tables to enhance learning.
