Paediatric Neurology Distance Learning

Unit 04 Central Motor Deficits

Unit aims:

This Unit should familiarise you with the commonest motor disorders of childhood and will take you through neural tube disorders, cerebral palsy and acquired motor dysfunction.  For each disorder you will be taken through the case of a child, or several children, and you should try to identify similar cases in your own practice with which you have had personal involvement.

In addition, one section from the ‘Metabolic, Nutritional and Systemic Disease’ unit is provided. This covers the movement disorders determined by primary metabolic disorders, and concentrates on the more common presentations of these, their biochemical and central nervous system substrate basis, a rational approach to investigation and how best to inform the families involved of their nature. With this addition, Unit 4 becomes a comprehensive resource for learning about the spectrum of paediatric movement disorders.
