About this book


An introductory text that transitions into a moderately advanced, case-based analysis of neurologic disorders and diseases, this book emphasizes how to simplify the process of making a neurologic diagnosis.  Medical students and residents are often intimidated by a deluge of data, perception of anatomic complexity, extensive differential diagnoses, and often have no organized structure to follow.  Diagnostic methods of general medicine are not applicable.  Indeed, neurology is a unique specialty since it requires the intermediary step of an anatomic diagnosis prior to proffering a differential diagnosis.  Yet the required knowledge of neuroanatomy need not be profound for the student or resident who will not specialize in neurology or neurosurgery.  

The Neurologic Diagnosis: A Practical Bedside Approach, 2nd Edition is primarily directed to neurology and neurosurgery residents but it will be useful for medical and family practice residents who will discover that a great percentage of their patients have neurologic symptoms.  A one-month neurology rotation out of four years of medical school is not sufficient to make a cogent neurologic diagnosis. The aim of this concise, practical book -- which includes an in-depth video of how to perform a neurologic examination -- is to facilitate the process of establishing a neuroanatomic diagnosis followed by a rigorous analysis of symptoms and signs to reach a well-thought out differential diagnosis.  Focused and succinct, this book is an invaluable resource for making a lucid neurologic diagnosis.

Reviews

“This truly remarkable book by a master clinician covers neurological diagnosis in detail. … This book is a welcome addition for anyone really trying to learn how exactly neurology should be practiced. In a few decades, this approach may become more algorithmic or guideline based, but keep this book and come back to it from time to time to learn this approach.” (R. Allan Purdy, Doody's Book Reviews, April 26, 2019)
