Professor Yavuz Renda, founding father of Turkish Child Neurology (1932-2015)


The founding father of Turkish Child Neurology, Professor Yavuz Renda (b.1932) has passed away peacefully on the 24th of July, 2015 after a long illness. His family roots aided Mustapha Kemal Atatürk in the construction of Modern Turkey in 1923. Professor Renda established the backbones of our discipline in Turkey starting from early 1960s. This was parallel to the blossoming of Child Neurology worldwide. Professor Renda was a great teacher and a spirit to his pupils. He had deep concerns for the benefit of his patients and their families. He was a considerate man to his colleagues and juniors. We shall deeply miss him. His principles will be followed in generations.
