Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Stacy Horn, DO (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This seventh edition of the Mayo Clinic examinations in neurology updates the previous edition published in 1991. The text consists of two distinct sections divided into chapters. The first section describes in detail how to perform a history and physical on a neurologic patient and the second section describes neurologic procedures that may be helpful for diagnosis.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the clinician with the tools to approach a neurologic patient in a practical and systematic nature, and the book does an excellent job of fulfilling these goals.
Audience: This book will be useful to any individual who would like to improve his or her skills for examining, diagnosing, and treating the neurologic patient; this includes students, residents, and nonneurologic practitioners. The book is written by the neurologic staff at the Mayo Clinic.
Features: This 528-page book contains well-done black-and-white illustrations that are pertinent to the material. The table of contents is done with extensive detail and is very helpful.
Assessment: This well-done and informative book would be a useful and pertinent part of the student's or resident's library.
