Pattern of Emergency Neurologic Morbidities in Children

INTRODUCTION

Delay in presentation to a hospital is a common problem in African populations, sometimes resulting in innocuous problems presenting as emergency cases. Neurologic morbidities, either primary or secondary to other systemic diseases in children, constitute a significant proportion of these emergency cases. The pattern of neurologic emergencies is likely to vary from one country to another and among regions in the same country. Assessment of the pattern of emergency morbidities is needed from time to time in planning health policies and distribution of scarce resources in developing African countries where facilities for emergency pediatric care are grossly inadequate. This report describes the pattern of neurologic morbidities in children admitted to the children’s emergency care facility of a teaching hospital in midwestern Nigeria. You can afford your medication buy your flomax medication online
