Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kenneth S Shindler, MD, PhD (University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine)
Description: This first volume in the Blue Books of Neurology series dedicated to neuro-ophthalmologic practice highlights specific afferent and efferent problems affecting the visual system commonly encountered in neuro-ophthalmology.
Purpose: The editors' purpose is to present the "main and common conditions seen in neuro-ophthalmology with an emphasis on modern methods of assessment and treatment." They do not intend this as a comprehensive textbook. Their objective is a worthwhile one as exhaustive textbooks are already available, and more focused practical guides can provide useful references on appropriate management for practitioners.
Audience: The book is written for neurologists as well as neurosurgeons and ophthalmologists. Enough detail is presented on each topic to introduce comprehensive practitioners in each field to the issues commonly assessed by neuro-ophthalmologists, providing the tools necessary to begin addressing associated symptoms and to help practitioners understand what further considerations may be addressed by the neuro-ophthalmologist. The editors, as well as the individual chapter authors, are worldwide leaders with extensive experience and expertise.
Features: Chapters cover subsets of neuro-ophthalmologic conditions including specific types of optic neuropathies, pupillary disorders, and motility disorders. Each chapter begins with a brief outline and a list of key points. This useful feature immediately directs readers' attention to the most critical aspects of the underlying conditions. While afferent problems affecting the optic nerve and brain are covered in a series of chapters, both efferent pupillary and motility disorders are each addressed more briefly in one chapter. In all cases, an extensive list of references is provided for those whose wish to explore topics in greater detail.
Assessment: The editors have provided an excellent overview of approaches currently used to evaluate and treat neuro-ophthalmologic conditions. Through contributions of leading experts in the field, the book addresses the most common conditions practitioners are likely to encounter.
