Is there any textbook, that is considered gold standard?
We have used Child Neurology, 7th edition by John H. Menkes ,ISBN: 0781751047 but Publication Date was 2005 so after that Clinical Pediatric Neurology by Gerald M. Fenichel;ISBN: 9781416061854,Publication Date: 2019-07-14 and Swaiman's Pediatric Neurology ,ISBN: 9780323371018.Publication Date: 2018 were considered. But we want to know that what is the pediatric neurology textbook in your department?

Unfortunately, in the UK there has been an increasing trend to not rely on general textbooks and often use review articles for learning. The Aicardi’s Diseases of the Nervous System in Childhood, 4th Edition (Clinics in Developmental Medicine) published in 2018 is excellent. However the print edition is so unwieldy that it just sits on most shelves. Junior trainees in the UK are often seen holding a copy of the Paediatric Neurology (Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Paediatrics) which has also been updated in 2018. I do not think there is a prescribed textbook as such to accompany the UK RCPCH Paediatric Neurology Curriculum.
