Overview

A Video Atlas of Neuromuscular Disorders by Aziz Shaibani

Praise for the First Edition: Winner of the 2015 PROSE Award in Clinical Medicine Practice, and the 2015 BMA Medical Book of the Year (Neurology Category) Award Winner

The second edition of A Video Atlas of Neuromuscular Disorders includes more than 300 video cases provided on an accompanying DVD. The videos and corresponding text illustrate a variety of adult neurological disorders and their diagnosis and treatment.

Written with the busy Fellow, Resident, and practicing clinician in mind, the work utilizes real clinic videos as the key teaching mechanism so that the reader can focus on the intellectual challenges of each case instead of attempting to build a mental picture based on one-dimensional figures. All videos are supplemented with challenging multiple choice questions to provide an excellent way for the readers to interact and engage with the material they are studying.

This essential atlas has become an invaluable resource for neurology and neuromuscular training programs, and is the perfect resource for preparing for the neurology and neuromuscular boards. It also caters to the too-busy and often-overwhelmed modern doctor by allowing the reader to absorb the key features and intricacies of each case in a very focused manner.

This award-winning text follows the same formatting as the first edition: each chapter is organized by symptom rather than disease. Every case in each chapter includes a video to start, a description of the case, multiple choice questions about what the diagnosis may be, the diagnosis, and key references to follow.
