Summary
Expert synthesis of acquired brain injuries from the fetus to the term newborn to improve diagnosis and care is presented in this authoritative book, including recent significant advances. This book focuses on specific populations encountered regularly by clinicians, practising neurologists, neonatologists and paediatricians
