What Is Pediatric Neurology?

Pediatric neurology is a separate branch of pediatrics that focuses on brain, spine, muscle, blood vessel, and autonomic and peripheral nervous system issues in children of all ages, from newborns to adolescents. Pediatric neurologists have the skills necessary to treat a host of conditions, ranging from common ailments to more complex and rare disorders. Some neurological issues these medical professionals diagnose and treat include:

  • Migraines and headaches
  • Autism spectrum conditions
  • Epilepsy
  • Brain tumors
  • Tourette’s syndrome
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other behavioral struggles
  • Congenital nervous system diseases
  • Genetic metabolic problems impacting the nervous system
  • Neuromuscular disorders like muscular dystrophy
  • Spina bifida and other birth defects affecting the brain and spine
  • Challenges with neurological development during childhood
  • Cerebral palsy and other movement issues
  • Febrile seizures
  • Challenges with mental development, such as learning and speech disabilities
  • Head injuries and associated complications
  • Neurodegenerative disorders
  • Fluid build-up in the brain (hydrocephalus)
  • Vascular neurology
  • Intellectual impediments
  • Sleep issues

A child may only see a pediatric neurologist for a short time if they have an acute condition. Conversely, patients with chronic neurological disorders may see these specialists almost as often as they do a primary care provider. Pediatric neurologists frequently collaborate with other healthcare professionals to deliver the most effective care to their patients. Pediatric neurologists serve in numerous medical settings, including hospitals, physician’s practices, private clinics, and university healthcare centers.
