This unique text fills the gap between shorter texts, containing little explanatory material, and the compendia, for those advanced in the field of neurological disorders. It is written both for novices and for physicians who require an update on the subject. To understand the symptoms and signs requires a sound knowledge of the gross anatomy of the central nervous system and supporting tissues. This book achieves this using the author's own detailed diagrams, backed up with concise and practical guidance on diagnosis and treatment, as well as relevant case studies.The long-awaited second edition of this highly popular guide reflects such recent advances as computed tomography and MRI. The tutorial approach presents readers with an authoritative view of the fundamentals of practical neurology.Patten, John is the author of 'Neurological Differential Diagnosis', published 1996 under ISBN 9783540199373 and ISBN 3540199373.
