Overview

Psychiatric Aspects of Neurologic Diseases: Practical Approaches to Patient Care is targeted at neurologists, psychiatrists, and other physicians who care for patients with the most common neurologic diseases ranging from Alzheimer's to stroke to headaches to multiple sclerosis to epilepsy. The book provides a practical approach to the evaluation and treatment of the psychiatric conditions that affect the vast majority of these patients and are as disabling as the neurologic symptoms. Drawing from the collective wisdom and clinical expertise of the faculty of the Johns Hopkins Division of Geriatric Psychiatry and Neuropsychiatry, one of the largest and most well known faculties in this specialized field, the book provides a wealth of useful clinical information for physicians who care for these patients. The volume is divided into three parts: the first part (2 chapters) provides a detailed approach to the evaluation and differential diagnosis of the neurologic patient with psychiatric symptoms followed by a discussion of the common psychiatric syndromes seen in these patients. The second part discusses in detail the epidemiology, clinical presentation, and treatment of psychiatric conditions in 12 neurologic diseases, written by experts in each of these diseases. The third discusses in depth the range of psychiatric treatments, both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic, available to treat the psychiatric aspects of neurologic diseases, specifically tailored to their use with the neurologic patient. The book is intended to serve as a practical reference for clinicians and is written in clear language, with distinct separated text segments, linked to the frequent use of tables. A glossary of terms, used throughout the book, is provided at the end for easy reference.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive and useful book covering the neuropsychiatric care of patients. It is unfortunate that the neuropsychiatric complications of neurologic diseases, in general, increase morbidity and mortality of the illness, yet there is little in the way of evidence-based treatments available with known impact in reducing these complications. This practical approach to patient care is a step in that direction providing the state-of-the art recommendations for the treatment of theses burdensome issues. Written and edited by nationally recognized experts in neuropsychiatry, this is a welcome addition to the psychiatric literature.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the editors, is to make the treatment of the neuropsychiatric complications of neurologic disease "easier by helping the reader recognize and distinguish among various psychiatric syndromes; by describing which psychiatric syndromes might be expected to occur in common or representative neurologic diseases; and by discussing the characteristics of, and indications for, psychiatric treatments.
Audience: The audience includes neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychiatrists, and behavioral neurologists. Geriatricians and geriatric psychiatrists would also benefit from the recommendations in this user friendly book. Trainees in neurology and psychiatric residency programs, and fellows in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry would find this book very useful as well.
Features: Part 1 of the book focuses on assessment and an overview of syndromes. Part 2 covers the psychiatric aspects of neurologic diseases such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, headache and chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Parkinson disease, Alzheimer disease, frontotemporal lobe dementia, Huntington disease, cerebellar diseases, Tourette syndrome, brain tumors, lupus, HIV/AIDS, and Wilson disease. Part 3 covers treatment categories with chapters on antidepressants, stimulants and dopamine augmenters, neuroleptics, mood stabilizers, anxiolytics, cholinesterase inhibitors and memantine, ECT, psychotherapy, and other nonpharmacologic interventions. Each chapter concludes with pertinent and contemporary citations of the scientific literature. In addition to an index, the book has a glossary of mental phenomena and symptoms.
Assessment: This is a valuable new book covering the everyday care of patients with neuropsychiatric complications of neurologic disease. Any clinician who treats patients with neurologic illness would find the efficacy of their care enhanced by understanding this information.
