This informative and entertaining compilation of 50 short neurological cases demonstrates important principles in clinical localization and differential diagnosis. Each case presents the key elements without revealing the diagnosis at first. A vivid clinical scenario provides enough information for the student to localize the site of the lesion and for the experienced neurological physician to reach a differential diagnosis. Each case description is followed by one or two illustrations, the diagnosis, and then a commentary by a Mayo Clinic consultant. The commentary highlights the issues in the differential diagnosis and provides an update on what is currently known about the specific diagnostic entity. The book will be of interest to physicians and surgeons caring for neurological patients at each stage of their career. It will be of particular help to medical students and to residents and fellows in neurology and neurosurgery. Internists, pediatricians, geriatricians, and psychiatrists will also find it useful.

This volume contains fifty succinct Neurology cases that test your ability to localize and reach a differential diagnosis." --JINS "It should be required reading for any neurologist in training and would be of interest to any physician or surgeon caring for patients with neurological disorders whatever their seniority or career intentions." --Neuromuscular Disorders "Want to challenge yourself on a series of brief but precisely detailed neurological cases, each first presented with central features but without the diagnosis?
