Neurological Differential Diagnosis fills the gap between short texts containing little explanatory detail and advanced compendia for those with a good working knowledge of neurological diseases. It is intended for the novice and those numerous physicians who receive inadequate training in the diagnosis of neurological disorders. Understanding the symptoms and signs requires a good knowledge of gross anatomy of the nervous system and supporting tissues. This is achieved by the liberal use of detailed diagrams of exceptional clarity complemented by the author's own concise and practical guidance to diagnosis and treatment, backed up by appropriate case studies. This unique tutorial approach presents the reader with an authoritative view of neurology in practice and will be a valuable companion for all students and practitioners.

Industry Reviews

"...what makes this book interesting is the extremely sober and concise style in which its subject is presented...This book is excellently structured and its descriptions are clear and informative...can be recommended without reservations, primarily to neurologists, but also, and with the same conviction, to neurosurgeons."
