This concise, thoroughly updated text provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of neurology and will serve as a highly practical resource for neurology residents and medical students. Emphasizing a practical approach to common neurologic disorders, the author blends chapters that cover the evaluation of specific complaints (confusion, dizziness and vertigo, visual loss, headache and facial pain) with others that focus on particular disorders (Parkinsonism, multiple sclerosis, dementia). Noting the core practice of neurology is largely unchanged from years ago and still largely done at the bedside, the author emphasizes the importance of acquiring expertise in the time-tested, classical techniques of history taking, directed examination, and localization. Toward that, the author encourages a focus on the key clinical pathways for diagnosis and management. A wide range of clinical pearls are provided and the diagrams and illustrations are well-designed and comprehensible, as are the clinical images (EEGs, CT, MRI) which provide excellent examples of a variety of neurologic disorders. The discussions and algorithms offered are evidence-based and state-of-the-art. Importantly, the author discusses a range of new, powerful treatments available for various disorders, including stroke, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis. Concise and well-written, Neurology: A Clinician’s Approach, 2nd Edition is an invaluable resource that will again serve as a very useful, gold-standard resource for trainees.

An engagingly written text that bridges the gap between neuroanatomy and clinical neurology “A wonderfully readable, concise, but by no means superficial book that fits well in the current pedagogic environment.” From the Foreword by Allan H. Ropper, MD Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy delivers a clear, logical discussion of the complex relationship between neuroanatomical structure and function and neurologic disease. Written in a clear, concise style, this unique text offers a concise overview of fundamental neuroanatomy and the clinical localization principles necessary to diagnose and treat patients with neurologic diseases and disorders. Unlike other neurology textbooks that either focus on neuroanatomy or clinical neurology, Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy integrates the two in manner which simulates the way neurologists learn, teach, and think. Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy is divided into two main sections. In Part 1, clinically relevant neuroanatomy is presented in clinical context in order to provide a framework for neurologic localization and differential diagnosis. The diseases mentioned in localization-based discussions of differential diagnosis in Part 1 are then discussed in clinical detail with respect to their diagnosis and management in Part 2. Part 1 can therefore be consulted for a neuroanatomical localization-based approach to symptom evaluation, and Part 2 for the clinical features, diagnosis, and management of neurologic diseases. FEATURES • A clear, concise approach to explaining the complex relationship between neuroanatomical structure and function and neurologic disease • Numerous full-color illustrations and high resolution MRI and CT scans • Explanatory tables outline the clinical features, characteristics, and differential diagnosis of neurologic diseases and disorders
