Clinical and scientific advances since the publication of the first edition of this book have led to fuller understanding and reassessment of many disorders familiar to the child neurologist, and to the recognition of others which were previously unknown. New methods of imaging the nervous system have displayed structural anomalies more clearly, allowing recognition of more subtle disorders of brain development and myelination. Advances in clinical neurophsiology, enzymology, and biochemistry allow its function to be studied more deeply. Lysosomal, mitochondrial and peroxisomal disorders are areas of particular progress leading to the radical review of certain rare diseases and to the theoretical possibility of effective treatment. Such treatment in most progressive neurological disorders still elude us, but recent advances in some forms of muscular dystrophy have also encouraged therapeutic hopes. Early diagnosis of the relatively few disorders for which a specific treatment is available remains critically important. Prognostic and genetic implications, however, are still reason for diagnostic accuracy in many conditions with which we deal. Improvement in function and quality of life and palliation of symptoms, such as seizure, spasticity and unwanted movements, for which no cure is available, must continue to occupy much of our time, and that of our colleagues, both medical, paramedical and educational, in a team approach which ensures that the child, with his strengths, weaknesses and needs, is seen as a whole and in depth. A paediatrician has been defined as a physician for whom no problem is too small.
