Abstract

The physician is uniquely qualified to manage the multiple facets of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. This clinically oriented update reviews the current state of the art regarding diagnosis and management of hyperactive children. Three case reports emphasize the wide variation of clinical problems presented by this frequently occurring disorder of childhood. Epidemiology, differential diagnosis, associated features, neurobiologic mechanisms, treatment, long-term outcome, and attention-deficit disorder in adults are addressed. Although medication is an important tool in the treatment of this condition, follow-up studies confirm the importance of a multimodal treatment approach.
