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.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a concise, well-written introduction to clinical neurology from a British perspective.
Purpose: This book is designed to acquaint senior medical students with the principles of neurologic diagnosis and management.
Audience: The book is aimed at senior medical students.
Features: The book begins with an introduction to the neurologic history as well as to the principles of neurologic diagnosis and epidemiology. A surprising shortcoming in a book of this type is the failure to summarize the elements of the neurologic examination. There are several excellent chapters on neurologic syndromes and neurologic investigations. Seventeen separate chapters cover the major categories of neurologic disease, including stroke, epilepsy, movement disorders, and multiple sclerosis. A final chapter covers neurologic disability. Two appendixes cover support groups for neurologic disorders in the U.K. and disability benefits in the U.K.
Assessment: This is a clear and well-written book that will probably achieve wide acceptance with medical students in the U.K. Although this book is exceptionally clear and concise, well-written, well-referenced, and attractively illustrated and printed, its acceptance in the U.S. will be limited by the British orientation to diagnosis and management. This book is further limited by the fact that British drug therapy for neurologic diseases continues to differ substantially from drug therapy in the U.S. because of differences in the approval of drugs.
