From The Critics
Reviewer: Vijaya Patil, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: Patients often present with a wide and often confusing array of symptoms. Physicians elicit numerous signs during their examination and also obtain a lot of information from ancillary investigations. A clinical neuroscience student often requires quick, reliable clarification of the wide and often confusing array of symptoms, signs, and laboratory data to come to a diagnosis. This book provides vital diagnostic information in a convenient tabular format that is enormously helpful in achieving an accurate diagnosis with confidence.
Purpose: Establishing a differential diagnosis list is essential to allow correct interpretation of all data. However this is not always an easy task as it requires a very good memory, access to multiple reference sources, or both. Lists of differential diagnosis of neurological signs provide information that can be used logically when analyzing a neurological problem. The purpose of this book is to provide assistance with differential diagnosis in neurological and neurosurgical disease in a single, paperback source that is easy to carry. These are worthy objectives and the author definitely meets his objectives.
Audience: This book, according to the author, is intended as a practical guide for medical students, housestaff, ER physicians, and specialist clinicians who can use it on a daily basis at the bedside and also before examinations as a quick reference guide. I feel that this book is helpful for medical students and resident physicians, especially neurologists and neurosurgeons, as a quick reference guide.
Features: This book is printed in a two column lay-out and features some goo quality illustrations and neuroimages. The paperback format makes it handy and comprehensive. This book of differential diagnosis provides a guide to the differentiation of over 230 symptoms, physical and radiological signs, and other abnormal findings.
Assessment: This excellent, handy guide for medical students and resident physicians provides assistance with differential diagnosis of clinical problems encountered in neurology and neurosurgery. It is not to be used on its own, as it is not a complete textbook of neurology and neurosurgery.
