Summary "Case-Based Neurology provides a broad selection of cases drawn from all major areas of neurology including critical care and trauma, epilepsy, movement disorders, stroke, neurodegenerative diseases, spinal cord pathologies, neuro-oncology, neuromuscular and peripheral nervous system disorders, neuro-immunology, and neuro-infectious diseases. As the reader works through the cases, the importance of careful history taking, thorough examination, and ordering appropriate diagnostic studies is reinforced as it becomes apparent that the same chief complaint can lead to totally different diagnoses. Controversies in management are addressed within the case discussions to highlight differences in treatment philosophy and help sharpen clinical acumen." -- Publisher
