PEDIATRIC NEUROLOGY

MEDICAL SPECIALTY

About Pediatric Neurology

Pediatric neurology is also referred to as child neurology. It is, as the name implies, a medical specialty studies and treats neurological health conditions in children. Neurological ailments result from an alteration in various parts of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. The age range typically covered by a pediatric neurologist includes newborns, children, adolescents, and sometimes young adults, especially in cases of congenital neurological problems.

Children experience accelerated growth, and their nervous system constantly changes as well. Early detection of any abnormality in growth and development improves their health outcomes, quality of life, and normal development. Pediatric neurologists are trained to differentiate neurological disorders from normal behaviors children typically display and may concern parents and other family members.

Certain neurological problems are easier to diagnose and treat while others are more complex and require cooperation with a multidisciplinary team composed of neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, ophtalmologists, and other medical specialties. It may be necessary in some cases to order advanced tests in order to reach a proper diagnose and start a successful treatment plan.
