Lists of resources and key terms are included with each entry. A sampling of topics includes acupuncture, autism, beriberi, dizziness, encephalopathy, hearing disorders, multifocal motor neuropathy, plexopathies, Wallenberg syndrome, and Wilson disease. The text is clear and accessible, with entries organized in outline form, cross-referenced terms in bold type, and helpful illustrations in color.
