Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anath V. Mudgil, MD (Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center)
Description: This is a distillation of the comprehensive five volume, 6000 page, Miller's Walsh and Hoyt's Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology, 5th edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins). It is logically organized into five sections: the afferent visual system, the pupil, the efferent system, the eyelid, and non-organic disorders.
Purpose: The editors aim to condense the material found primarily in the first volume of the fifth edition to "just the essentials" of neuro-ophthalmic disease.
Audience: This book is targeted to a wider audience than the larger comprehensive textbook. It will appeal to general practitioners in medicine, neurology, and ophthalmology who desire a handy reference of common neuro-ophthalmic diseases.
Features: Although the text is an abridged version of the comprehensive textbook, it is still sufficiently detailed to stand alone. Much of what is eliminated in the condensation is detailed referencing. There are no references at the end of chapters; the reader is instead referred to the appropriate volumes and pages of the original textbook. The section on the afferent visual system provides a discussion of conditions from the anterior to posterior visual pathway in logical succession. The section on the efferent system has a well-presented chapter on nystagmus. Throughout the textbook, commonly used terminology and/or cardinal clinical features are appropriately written in bold print. A possible shortcoming is that there is no glossary, which would he useful in such a clinical handbook. However, the comprehensive index mitigates the lack of a glossary.
Assessment: This book is recommended for practitioners and residents in ophthalmology and neurology. Although it does not replace the comprehensive five-volume version from which it is based, it is an acceptable compromise to accommodate smaller office libraries and resident budgets.
