Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a handsome and well-written encyclopedic text for outpatient neurology.
Purpose: The authors have revised their popular book to bring it current through 2003. They have sought to create a comprehensive textbook of neurology that is specifically slanted to outpatient care.
Audience: This book is aimed at practicing neurologists who have a substantial outpatient neurology practice.
Features: This is a large book, over 1,500 pages in length and comprising 230 chapters created by neurological authorities in their field. The first 27 chapters cover the principles of diagnosis, symptom analysis, and use of specialized tests. The remainder of the book is divided up into seven large sections that cover stroke, autoimmune and infectious diseases, spinal cord and neuromuscular disease, movement disorders, epilepsy, neuro-oncology, and the interface between medicine and neurology.
Assessment: This book stands out as an excellent resource of outpatient neurology. The chapters are well-written, authoritative, and concise. Illustrations and drawings are of high pedagogic value. Although the book covers much the same ground as other leading textbooks of neurology, its emphasis on outpatient neurology is both unique and useful. To some extent, the choice of chapters and their length does not reflect the frequency of these disorders in neurological practice nor the amount of time that neurologists spend on different disorders. Nonetheless, the conditions neurologists see most often in the outpatient setting (headache, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, stroke, pain, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease) are covered well and completely. This is a valuable contribution to the discipline of outpatient neurology.
Steven U. Brint
This large multiauthored book offers the practicing neurologist a comprehensive text geared toward the outpatient management of neurology. The purpose is to offer a comprehensive text geared to outpatient adult neurology that provides quick access to detailed information necessary for the quality delivery of neurological care. In this era of outpatient medicine, this is a worthy objective. The book has largely met and usually exceeds these objectives. The book is targeted primarily toward the practicing neurologist or neurology resident in training. More than 200 authors representing a wide spectrum of specialists in neurological and allied fields have contributed. The book is conservatively illustrated; one small block of color plates is presented. There are numerous useful tables and a limited number of selected references after each chapter. This is a large, neat but dense volume. This one-stop shopping neurology compendium has a wealth of useful clinical information. At times it oversteps its alleged office practice focus with chapters that seem more appropriate in a standard text. The book's huge scope makes it unavoidable that certain information is outdated, yet most chapters are so well done that their utility will be largely preserved until the next edition. For the office practitioner and outpatient neurology clinic, the text will fill a niche that supersedes current standard neurology texts.
A practical text for practitioners of general neurology, encompassing most of the problems confronting clinicians seeing outpatients with neurological problems. The volume contains 230 contributed chapters arranged in nine parts: principles of ambulatory neurology and the approach to clinical problems; cerebrovascular disease; immune and infectious disease; spinal cord and peripheral neuromuscular disease; movement disorders; behavioral neurology and epilepsy; neuro-oncology; neurology in general medicine; and headache and pain. In the interest of the focus on office practice, the results of clinical science are included only insofar as they further the discussion of clinical topics. Illustrated in b&w throughout, with a six-page section of color plates. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
