  • Basic and well organized information for differential diagnosis and management of most common movement disorders
  • Can be used without comprehensive knowledge of the discipline of movement disorders as a bedside tool
  • Covers most important aspects of movement disorder diagnosis and management, and only most pertinent information is included
  • Assists the reader in quickly and easily recognizing the main problems that need to be addressed in movement disorder patients

This practical, pocket-sized, quick reference book is for those who need to manage movement disorder patients without the immediate help of a movement disorder neurologist. Only the most pertinent information is covered.

This book is divided into five chapters covering the common phenomenology of movement disorders and includes tremor, dystonia, chorea, myoclonus, and tics. The etiology, pathophysiology, symptoms and treatments of these conditions are briefly reviewed, with the emphasis on the most common practical challenges encountered with these patients.

Differential Diagnosis of Movement Disorders in Clinical Practice is aimed at postgraduates training in neurology, emergency care physicians, internists and primary care providers. Medical students will also find this book particularly helpful during their neurology rotations.
