Doody ReviewReviewer: Daniel B Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description:The authors have produced the fourth edition of their excellent introduction to clinical neurology.
Purpose:This book provides an introduction to clinical neurology that emphasizes correlating clinical signs and symptoms with disease states and sites of neuroanatomical dysfunction.
Audience:It is aimed primarily at medical students doing a rotation on the neurology service. However, neurology residents and attendings will find it a pleasurable and useful review.
Features:The book is largely organized by symptoms rather than diseases. Major neurological symptoms addressed include decreased consciousness, cognitive disorders, vision deficits, equilibrium deficits, seizures, coma, stroke, sensory deficits, and movement disorders. The book is filled with high quality drawings, tables, and neuroimages.
Assessment:Like the prior edition, this book is a pleasure to read. The writing is clear and terse. The chapter and paragraph headings organize the material clearly. The drawings are superb. The emphasis is on clinical-neuroanatomical correlation that leads the student to understand the underlying organization of the nervous system. This is a highly recommended book for medical students wishing to have a concise and instructive text for their two- or four-week neurology rotation.
