This pocket book is written for the practicing neurologist in a practical, easy to use format to help the clinician when treating patients with neurological problems.
This is not a book on how to make a diagnosis, but rather starts from the point of diagnosis and covers all the main neurological conditions as such as stroke, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy and migraine well as some of the rarer conditions such as Wilson's disease showing which treatments are evidence-based but also describing those which at present need more trials.
Each condition is described in the following way: definition, cause, frequency, and prognosis. Written by expert contributors, this book describes the treatment that neurologists are responsible for, indicates when to refer, shows complications of treatment, as well as drug interactions.

"This book covers all common general neurology well and the rarities briefly, but as such is an invaluable tool when deciding upon treatment of a condition which you have never seen before. It is inevitable in a handbook that content will be abbreviated; however, I think that this book is a successful balance of brevity and information." -- "Journal Neuromuscular Disorders"
