Paediatric Neurology is a multidisciplinary branch of science that works to prevent, reduce, diagnose, and treat neurological problems in children, if possible, and to ensure a better life for children with neurological problems.


A child is not a small adult but a growing and developing human. The nervous system of the child is the system that shows continuous growth, development, and maturation from fertilization to adulthood.


The child's organism is a whole in itself; diseases of other systems and organs can also affect the development and functions of the child's nervous system. For example, congenital dysfunction of the thyroid gland may lead to mental retardation, or a stroke may develop in a baby with heart disease. Emergency neurological problems in children are also not uncommon. Coma, paralysis, and seizures are the most common neurological emergencies in children. These neurological problems can cause permanent damage and even lead to death.


Neurological diseases do not only affect children who suffer from these diseases. The families and close circles of these children are also affected by this condition, which requires treatment, rehabilitation, and care. At the same time, the inability of these patients to participate in social production and the constant allocation of a significant share of national income and labour for their care and treatment make these diseases a social problem. Having a neurological disease in a child can be a serious problem, first for the child himself, then for his family and society.


In Academic Hospital, paediatric neurology outpatient services include neuroradiological examinations (cranial MRI, CBT, and brain tomography), ABR (brain stem hearing potential examination), sleep and awake EEG, video-monitored EEG, and multidisciplinary paediatric neurology patient follow-up and counselling services.
