Malformations of the Nervous System

This volume deals with brain development malformations of the central nervous system, showcasing a unique approach that furthers research through systematic integration of exciting new developments from fields including molecular genetics, neuroimaging, and neuropathology. By integrating data and research from these disciplines, better conceptualization of the mechanisms of the developmental processes is achieved. Clinicians will find invaluable insights into complex issues, including midline hypoplasias, disorders of segmentation of the neural tube, and hamartomatous disorders of cellular lineage, amongst others. The clinical manifestations of central nervous system malformations are also discussed, along with new advancements in MRI techniques and analysis, including volumetric morphology, spectroscopy, and functional neuroimaging. Sections dedicated to management and treatment are also included in an effort to aid clinicians in their goal of providing better care for individuals affected by these types of malformations. * A single source that encompasses the various aspects of cerebral malformations * A unique approach that furthers research through systematic integration of exciting new developments from fields including molecular genetics, neuroimaging, and neuropathology * New diagnostic tools, management protocols, and treatments for patient care

Genetics and Neurology focuses on disorders that affect the nervous system, including atrophies, neuropathies, and tumors. The book first examines malformations of the central nervous system, phacomatoses and tumors, and cerebral degenerative disorders of childhood. Topics include malformations of the corpus callosum and neighboring structures; abnormalities of closure of neural tube; spongiform leucodystrophy; and tumors of the nervous system. The text then takes a look at extrapyramidal disorders and dyskinesias and muscle disorders. The publication elaborates on spinal muscular atrophies (

Questions regarding the nature and appropriate management of cavernous malformation (CM) have clouded researchers and those faced with making clinical decisions for several decades. CMs may be seen as an incidental finding on MRI studies, or they may present with symptoms, such as seizures or intracranial hemorrhage, often causing severe neurologic deficit. Cavernous Malformations of the Nervous System provides a comprehensive and authoritative review of the current practice in diagnosis and management of these cerebrovascular disorders. Emphasis has been laid

Nowadays, nobody can imagine practicing obstetrics without using obstetrical ultrasound. Working in the prenatal diagnosis field requires dedication, patience, skills, experience, caution, and empathy. The concept of this book was guided by the desire to provide some help to the ultrasound operators. On a daily basis, they are confronted with the challenging task of ruling out or suspecting/confirming the diagnosis of fetal anomalies, either structural or chromosomal. The chapters of this book contain objective and exhaustive updated reviews of

"A desire to study congenital malformations of the CNS originated several years ago. It was found necessary first to acquire sufficient knowledge of anatomy of the normal adult human brain as well as of the morphogenesis of the developing human brain. The results of the work done in this field formed the subject for my M.Sc. thesis at the McGill University: Anatomical and Developmental Study of the Human Thalamus, 1951. This was subsequently published in the J. Comp. Neurology 1953 and 1954."

Congenital anomalies, also known as birth defects, are structural or functional abnormalities, including metabolic disorders, that are present from birth. Congenital anomalies are a diverse group of disorders of prenatal origin that can be caused by single gene defects, chromosomal disorders, multifactorial inheritance, environmental teratogens or micronutrient malnutrition. This atlas of selected congenital anomalies is a companion tool to Birth defects surveillance: a manual for programme managers, and is intended to help in the development, implementation and ongoing improvement of
