The most common neurological diseases in children are the following:
There are also psychiatry-related disorders. For instance, asthenic neurosis, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, pathologies of autistic spectrum.
Some pathologies, like septum pellucidum cyst, may not appear during life and are detected on computed tomography by accident. Other illnesses, such as hereditary Wilson-Konovalov disease, can cause death.
Doctors of Pediatric Neurology Department at "ON Clinic" identify the disease in the early stages of development and prevent severe complications. Modern ultrasound equipment and pediatric encephalography enable the doctor to study the brain structure in detail and not to miss brain pathology.
You should visit neurologist in the following cases:
During the consultation, neurologist examines the child and interviews the parents: asks about the dynamics of symptoms, the sequence of their occurrence, checks sensitivity, muscle strength, reflexes and coordination with a neurological hammer, needle and neurological tests. If some diseases are suspected, for example, if there are symptoms of spastic torticollis or epilepsy, the neurologist invites related specialists for consultation: pediatric orthopedist, psychologist or psychiatrist, therapist.
If there are any indications for surgery, the neuropathologist invites pediatric surgeon for consultation to discuss the clinical picture of disease and treatment methods. Pediatric surgeon helps to find the most effective treatment for neurological disease.
