Overview

The third edition of this concise but comprehensive textbook follows on from the highly-regarded earlier editions in providing the trainee and general physician with a better understanding of the principles of neurology. Retaining an emphasis on the core clinical skills of history taking and careful neurological examination, the new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to take into account new developments in investigation and treatment. Particular areas of enhanced coverage include headache, expanded beyond migraine to cover other presentations, and multiple sclerosis. Completely new chapters discuss the increasing role of neurogenetics in the understanding and treatment of neurological disease, the importance of pain and its management and neurological complications associated with respiratory intensive care.

Following the sad death of Dr. David Marsden, Dr John Scadding has joined the editorial team retaining the 'Queen Square' connection of earlier editions.

The book contains black-and-white figures.

Editorial Reviews

Vijaya K. Patil
This book provides a broad view of the various disease conditions affecting the nervous system, their clinical manifestations, the approach to diagnosing them, and, when possible, the treatment. The authors have produced this book to help readers develop a better understanding of the principles of neurology. With the rapid advances in the field, a concise book explaining these principles to beginners is a necessity. This book meets the authors' objectives. Medical students, junior doctors, MRCP candidates, and practicing physicians are the intended audience. I feel that this book would be of immense help to medical students and physicians from other specialties who deal with patients with neurologic problems. In general, this book covers the various disease conditions affecting the nervous system. It aims at simplifying the vast field of clinical neurology into manageable proportions by discussing in separate sections the patient's complaint, the doctor's examination, and the individual diseases. At the beginning of the chapter, a list of the important topics covered lets the reader know what to expect. Highlighting the take-home messages in every section and placing important information in eye-catching boxes are both unique features. The photographs of MRI and CT scans are of good quality and the explanations that go with them are succinct. This is a concise handbook to help medical students, junior doctors, and practicing physicians acquire a better understanding of the principles of neurology. Its unique features set it apart from Textbook of Neurology by Bogousslavsky et al. (Butterworth-Heinemann, 1998). Relevant neuroimaging study images and succinctexplanation to go with the epidemiological data and references at the end of every chapter should be of immense help to the intended audience.
