Book Description

A collection of unusual and interesting case reports is presented in this book by the author, a pediatrician and child neurologist, based on his experiences spanning five decades in academic centers in the United States, Panama and the Middle East. The book is divided into three sections (Sick Children, Sick Brains and Other Maladies) and 45 chapters. The subjects include the Reye syndrome epidemic; cases of methemoglobinemia, pica, hemorrhagic shock and rare inborn errors of metabolism; tropical diseases including snakebite, diphtheria, toxoplasmosis, yellow fever, intestinal parasites and drug-resistant malaria; neurological problems such as migraine, concussion, status epilepticus, hypotonia, Rett syndrome, heatstroke, vertigo, autism and hyperekplexia; and personal essays on medicolegal cases, medical writing, the student riots protesting the American presence in the Panama Canal Zone in 1964, and the possible involvement of dendritic spines in autism and ADHD. Above all, the author's respect and compassion for sick children are palpable throughout this book.
