Paediatric Movement Disorders is a relatively new and exciting field of Child Neurology. The present book represents the outcome of an international symposium, organized as a forum for exchange between both adult and child neurologists. The contributions of highly qualified experts represent the "state of the art" of this rapidly expanding field. A source of thought for progress in further understanding, it will prove to be a useful tool to both clinicians and scientists.
