Children’s nervous system diseases are very different from those of those afflicting adults. Typical children’s neurological problems include : fits or convulsions, delayed nervous system maturation problems ( delayed speech, motor development, etc ), diseases due to birth defects of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles, and infections of the brain, its coverings ( meninges ) or nerves caused by both bacteria, viruses and other agents including parasites. Certain muscle diseases and disorders occur commonly in children either due to genetic defects, improper nervous system control of muscles and infections and exposure to toxins. Many nervous system diseases in children and newborns are of an acute nature ( sudden onset, and of short duration onset ). Some are chronic ( slow to develop and progress gradually. Nervous system disease in children and newborns requires a methodical, systematic approach to diagnosis and treatment. Delayed diagnosis and improper treatment can lead to permanent brain and nervous system injury and even death.
