In Memoriam

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Professor Yukio Fukuyama, a true pioneer in the field of pediatric neurology who chaired our Department of Pediatrics at Tokyo Women' s Medical University, for a quarter of a century, teaching and mentoring young doctors and leading us into the 21st century. The depth and breadth of his accomplishments are a testament to his commitment to patients, their families, the university, his coworkers and advances in pediatric neurology worldwide. He will be sorely missed by friends and colleagues alike, thanks to his tireless efforts to advance Child Neurology, always based on his belief in "slow but steady" progress.

Professor Fukuyama (DOB: 28 May, 1928, Birthplace: Miyazaki, Japan) passed away on July 17, 2014, due to aspiration pneumonia, at the age of 86.
