English | ISBN: 1933864257 | 2012 | 416 pages | PDF | 10 MB
If it is true that a picture is worth a thousand words, a visual memory of a good clinical case will be retained and absorbed in a way that traditional text readings are not. "Case-based Neurology" is organized by chief complaint; each case includes an introduction, physical exam, case questions, laboratory testing and imaging findings, diagnosis, and discussion including differential diagnosis and treatment. The back of the book provides a topic list for readers who want to review cases by disease pathology or subject, rather than as unknowns, covering movement disorders, epilepsy, trauma, stroke, tumors, vascular lesions, and more. All major areas of neurology are covered, and the cases come from the authors personal experience working at a major tertiary referral center. Both typical and atypical presentations of a disease are included. Cases are illustrated with high-quality images, and diagnosis and clinical management is emphasized. For each case, controversies in management are discussed and references provided. This title features case-based format that simulates clinical situations and strengthens diagnostic skills. This is an effective teaching and learning tool; ideal for Board preparation. It includes consistent presentation. It offers management focus; and clinical correlates and key points are emphasized. It is highly illustrated.
