Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Katherine Riordan, MD (Mayo Clinic Arizona)
Description: This is an update of a manual on the most accepted and appropriate therapeutics for common and important neurologic conditions encountered in patients in both hospital and outpatient settings. The previous edition was published in 2004.
Purpose: As a diagnostic and treatment-oriented resource for neurologists and neurology residents, this manual does a commendable job of providing current, accurate, and easy to read information necessary to solve most frequently encountered clinical problems.
Audience: The target audience is neurologists and neurology residents, and the book successfully provides enough information for it to be a quick reference for most neurologic issues. The authors are neurologists who have written chapters on their specific subspecialties.
Features: Overall, the book provides accurate, easily accessible information on both serious and commonly encountered neurologic problems, and guidance on appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic options. Furthermore, detailed epidemiologic and pathophysiologic details of a given condition serve as an excellent refresher for practitioners. The book also allows readers to access information concerning a specific patient complaint, such as dizziness, rather than just by diagnosis. The greatest strength of this book is how complete it is. It covers a wide array of neurologic topics and subtopics at a level appropriate for a first-line reference without becoming too bogged down in the details of any given clinical problem, which minimizes distraction from clinically pertinent information. The targeted audience could benefit from supplementary graphics in the section on ischemic stroke to delineate arterial distributions and the main intracerebral arterial supplies. It also would be helpful to have an in-hospital approach to status migrainosus, as one agent is seldom used.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource of easy to access, clinically relevant information for neurology practitioners. It is authored by respected physicians in the field who have produced an appropriate update, given how rapidly the field is changing with respect to therapeutics.
