Paediatric patients with neurological problems are a special population. Managing these patients requires special anaesthetic considerations and a detailed book is much needed. This book is a comprehensive reference book and includes topics ranging from basic sciences (neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropharmacology) to special situations such as brain death, ethical issues, and palliative care. Besides the chapters dealing with various neurological surgical problems, there is a dedicated section on common procedures performed on paediatric patients in the operation theatre and ICUs, such as insertion of venous cannula, arterial line, central line, etc., all of which are challenging. This section is supported by tutorial videos. The fact that basic sciences are included along with clinical sciences makes it unique and helpful for the readers.
