It is estimated that 20% of 624 million children under five years of age in the world live in India. Neurological disorders constitute a substantial proportion of the disability in children. Yet, pediatric neurology had remained rather a neglected specialty till recently. Few Institutes in India offer full time residency program exclusively in pediatric neurology. Fortunately for these children and their families, the situation is slowly improving. There had been major break through in the understanding of several common pediatric neurological disorders. The progress in molecular genetics, gene therapy, bio informatics and neuropharmacology has facilitated more precise diagnosis and management of several metabolic and degenerative disorders in children.

Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology (AIAN) has decided that we should cover the progress in specific areas of neurology by bringing out theme based supplements. We would like to commission exhaustive review articles from the experts with extensive hands on experience in specific areas to contribute articles to these supplements. Naturally our first choice was Pediatric Neurology. I congratulate Dr. K. B. Das for taking up this important responsibility of preparing this supplement for the AIAN. He had identified the appropriate contributors for each of these carefully selected topics. I would like to thank each of the authors for taking the pains to write exclusively for this supplement. I am confident that all the members of the Indian Academy of Neurology and other readers of the journal will appreciate very much their rich contributions.
