Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Charles C Wang, MD, MS (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of a book intended to provide a bridge between neurology and the major specialties and subspecialties in general medicine. Both medicine and neurology are ever-changing and this new edition is absolutely a worthy attempt.
Purpose: The goal of the author is to appeal to both neurologists and physicians in other specialties by providing a guide to the neurological features of general medical disorders and to some of the medical complications. The book has met these are worthy objectives.
Audience: The book is written for consultant neurologists, neurology residents, and physicians in other medical specialties. The author is a credible authority.
Features: The relationship between neurology and most specialties in medicine is addressed. The neurological complications encountered in daily medical and surgical practice are elucidated thoroughly. This new edition not only inherits the excellence of previous editions, but also develops new chapters that cover the advances in neurology and medicine in the past few years. This is one of the best reference books in this area.
Assessment: Neurological complications are seen in daily medical and surgical practice. Neurologists should know more about medicine and they should readily recognize these complications; physicians in other medical specialties should be familiar with these complications before they call for consults. This new edition provides the necessary knowledge. This is, indeed, an invaluable reference book for those who encounter issues in the borderline areas in neurology and medicine.
