Overview

Thoroughly updated for its Eighth Edition, this highly praised volume of the House Officer Series is a succinct, symptom-oriented pocket guide to diagnosis, treatment, and management of common neurological disorders. Each chapter opens with a clinical case study and proceeds to classification of symptoms, history, physical examination, laboratory tests, differential diagnosis, diagnosis, treatment, and management.

This edition includes a new glossary of neurological terms, a new chapter on evidence-based neurology, a revised, more thorough chapter on localization of neurological disease, updated illustrations, and current references. The author reviews the latest advances in therapeutics, particularly in movement disorders, stroke, neuroimmunology, brain tumor treatment, headache pharmacology, and epilepsy.
