Overview

Better understand your patients' complete medical profile and provide the best possible care! This one-of-a-kind reference provides a practical look at neurological disease and how it affects, and is affected by, other disease. It helps neurologists manage patients with co-existing medical conditions, and helps internists understand and treat the neurological manifestations of patients' primary diseases. A new emphasis on diagnosis and management—including advances in pharmacology, genetic-based therapies, and new imaging techniques—makes this 4th Edition more clinically valuable than ever!

• Focused content highlights the vital links between neurology and other medical specialties, promoting a better understanding of all disciplines, as well as enhancing patient care.

• Comprehensive coverage of advances in pharmacology, such as new antibiotics for infectious diseases, helps you successfully manage a full range of diseases and disorders.

• An interdisciplinary team of authors provides insight into the neurological aspects of the conditions you see in daily practice.

• Easy-to-read chapters apply equally well to neurologists and non-neurologists, providing essential knowledge that covers the full spectrum of medical care.

• Expanded chapters emphasize key diagnostic and therapeutic information, including appropriate testing and treatments for neurological disease.

• An emphasis on advances in pharmacology and new imaging techniques helps you better manage your patients and understand how new drugs or therapies will affect your patients and practice.

• New chapters on auditory and vestibular disease, ocular disease, and cutaneous disease provide a well-rounded look at the specialty.

• Updated illustrations make complex concepts easier to understand and apply.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Highly recommend it to neurologists, and any other medical professional who would like to better understand the neurological sequela of general medical disorders."—Epilepsy Research, review of last edition.
Gubert L. Tan
This is the second edition of a unique book that deals with the different neurologic manifestations of common diseases in general medicine. The main purpose is to serve as a bridge between neurology and other medical subspecialties. Precisely because of this, it has received a wide acceptance from both internists and neurologists. Although primarily intended for the neurologist and internist, this book will also be helpful for doctors in the surgical specialties. Most of the authors are well known in their respective fields. This second edition has a handsome new cover and, as in the first edition, the text is large and easy to read. Helpful illustrations have been added, and the references have been updated. Several years have passed since the first edition of this crucial book dealing with neurology and the other medical disciplines. Chapters on environmental medicine and neurotoxicology have been added. With the expansion of the subspecialties of medicine and the tremendous amount of new information since the first edition, this book was necessarily updated. I highly recommend the book not only to consulting neurologists but also to those in related medical and surgical specialties.

Meet the Author

Dr. Michael J. Aminoff is an internationally recognized, board-certified neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist who works at UCSF Medical Center and specializes in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, holding an endowed chair in Parkinson’s disease research. Aminoff was educated in England, graduating with honors from University College in London in 1962 and as a physician from University College Hospital Medical School in 1965. He completed postdoctoral training in various London teaching hospitals, but especially at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen Square, London, and at its affiliated Institute of Neurology, where his research on spinal physiology gained him an MD degree (an advanced research thesis in the UK). He joined UCSF Medical Center in 1974, becoming a full professor in 1982; the title of distinguished professor was conferred on him in 2010. In 2000, he was awarded a doctorate in science (an advanced doctorate in the Faculty of Science) from the University of London. He has received numerous awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (2006) and the A.B.Baker Award from the American Academy of Neurology (2007). He was the editor-in-chief of Muscle and Nerve, a major neuroscience journal for 10 years; serves on the editorial boards of several other medical and scientific journals; and has authored nearly 250 research publications as well as numerous books. Dr. Aminoff is also editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia of Neurological Sciences and series editor of the multivolume Handbook of Clinical Neurology (Elsevier).
