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.
