Overview


This work covers the principles of diagnosis, investigation, and treatment, demonstrating how careful history-taking and examination will allow an accurate diagnosis of the site of malfunction. The book emphasizes the management of common yet problematical symptoms such as headache and facial pain. It next comprehensively discusses the principal diseases and syndromes in neurology. Common illnesses such as stroke, dementia, and multiple sclerosis are given in-depth coverage, and recent advances in scientific medicine that have increased our understanding of the epidemiology and management of such illnesses are stressed. Finally there is a discussion of rehabilitation and the management of chronic disease and handicap. This relevant and accessible text will be useful to practicing physicians and neurologists, and medical students.
