Epilepsy is the most common neurological disorder of childhood, occurring both in children whose physical and cognitive states are otherwise normal as well as being a facet of a more generalised and severe brain disease. There are many manifestations of epilepsy and, therefore, a diversity of factors in underlying pathology, responses to treatment and prognosis. Full understanding requires knowledge of the basic science that underlies epilepsy and its causes, and an appreciation of cognitive, psychiatric and social factors. This book is a comprehensive and up-to-date review of all aspects of childhood epilepsy for the specialist neurologist or paediatrician with an interest in this area. The first edition was praised for its valuable clinical approach to examining the nature of epileptic syndromes and for its appropriate and readable coverage of the underlying basic science, features that are retained and expanded upon in this revision. Particular updates include full coverage of new developments in epidemiology, genetics, classification, imaging, drug therapy and other treatments. Several new chapters have been added, covering eyelid myoclonia, Rasmussen's syndrome, cognitive and behavioural manifestations of epilepsy, and vagal nerve stimulation. This book is essential reading for paediatric neurologists, epileptologists and paediatricians, and will continue to provide invaluable support for any physician confronted by a child with epilepsy.

During the past three decades, histology has seen enormous progress, thanks to new techniques and new investigation instruments. Numerous discoveries of important structures and morphofunctional phenomena have been described in a wealth of papers of ever increasing size and complexity. These publi cations have become difficult to follow, not only because of their number, but also because of a disparity of terminology and the multitude of synonyms employed by different authors. All of this makes reading and comprehension of the progress that has been achieved laborious, even for histologists, but especially for students, researchers in other basic branches of medicine, or clinicians who have to consult histological texts during their studies or investigations. In order to facilitate the orientation of all those interested in histology, a concise and practical volume in encyclopedic style, defining and, at the same time, illustrating fundamental histolog ical terms, enumerating synonyms, and describing morpho functional phenomena has become necessary, both because a work of this genre does not exist and because the list of Latin terms elaborated by the International Anatomical Nomenclature Committee in 1977 does not give illustrations or definitions of histological terms. The present work attempts to redress this deficiency.
