Research in the field of epilepsy will continue at a rapid pace, with the ultimate hope of curing many intractable epilepsy syndromes. Fully updated, this new edition is organized chronologically, from neonate through adolescence, and the handbook is the culmination of a group effort involving leading physicians and researchers whose contributions constitute a concise and practical reference for health professionals in training. Here the contributors review the recent flood of new information on the pathophysiology, genetics, and treatment of the various epilepsy syndromes, and the volume is distilled into an easy-to-use guide.

• Fully updated text reviewing the latest research on the pathophysiology, genetics, and treatment of the various epilepsy syndromes.
• Thorough descriptions of the different syndromes commonly encountered in clinical practice across the pediatric range.
• Extensive resource section provided.
• Contributors describe why they chose each particular case, what they learned, and how it changed their practice.
• The book includes the most recent classification and nomenclature published by the International League Against Epilepsy.

• Maria Augusta Montenegro is a pediatric neurologist and epileptologist currently working at Rady Children's Hospital / University of California San Diego School of Medicine. Her clinical expertise is in pediatric epilepsy, with an emphasis on epileptic encephalopathy and EEG. Dr. Montenegro completed medical school, residency, and Ph.D. at the University of Campinas (Brazil) and a post-doctorate research fellowship at Columbia University (NY). Prior to her current position, Dr. Montenegro held an academic faculty appointment at the University of Campinas (Brazil) where she was the head of Pediatric Neurology.
• Dr. Jong M. Rho is a Professor of Neurosciences, Pediatrics and Pharmacology at the University of California San Diego, and Division Chief of Pediatric Neurology at the Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego. He received a bachelor’s degree in molecular biophysics and biochemistry at Yale University, and a M.D. from the University of Cincinnati. Dr. Rho has held prior faculty appointments at the University of Washington (Seattle), the University of California at Irvine, the Barrow Neurological Institute (Phoenix), and most recently, the University of Calgary. Dr. Rho's main research interests are the mechanisms underlying the anti-seizure and neuroprotective effects of metabolism-based treatments such as the ketogenic diet. His research activities have been sponsored by research grants from the U.S. National Institutes of Health, Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and other public and private sector sources.
