Abstract

The patient of pediatric neurosurgery ranges from the preterm infant to the adolescent. The diseases addressed in pediatric neurosurgery include congenital disorders such as hydrocephalus, spina bifida, and craniosynostosis, particular types of tumors of the central nervous system, cerebrovascular diseases including vascular malformations and moyamoya disease, intractable epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury or acquired disorders. Pediatric neurosurgery requires team work that involves pediatric specialists from various fields including pediatric anesthesia, neurology, neuro-oncology, plastic surgery, psychology, and neuroradiology.
