Atlas of Neurometabolic Disorders

Front Cover
Cambridge Scholars Publishing, May 19, 2020 - Medical - 178 pages
Neurometabolic disorders are hereditary diseases of which neurological manifestations are a prominent sign. Because some neurometabolic diseases are treatable, early detection and early intervention in patients are essential. Children without early diagnosis and treatment suffer recurrent episodes of lethargy and loss of consciousness due to environmental stresses, and these attacks can lead to metabolic decompensating and often have fatal effects. Severe neurological consequences or regression in neurodevelopmental milestones are prominent signs in patients who survive.

According to these findings, physicians—especially in the fields of pediatric neurology, pediatric endocrinology, as well as pediatrics and neurology more generally—need to be familiar with these important groups of disorders in order to diagnose and treat them successfully. This atlas of neurometabolic disorders can be used as a guide, and is recommended for all pediatric specialists wishing to provide early diagnoses of pediatric patients.
