Anatomic Basis of Neurologic Diagnosis is a lavishly illustrated book that places special emphasis on the paramount importance of signs and symptoms for the accurate diagnosis of neurologic disorders. It opens with a comprehensive review of neuroembryology, enabling readers to gain knowledge of normal nervous system development and related developmental disorders. The second section of the book comprises an easily accessible presentation of the anatomy of regional parts and to-the-point information on the cardinal manifestations of disease. Separate chapters in the third section of the book present the anatomy of different functional systems and provide practical approaches to diagnosing patients with system disorders. A final chapter covers the anatomy of the vascular system and cerebrospinal fluid.
Ideal for reading cover-to-cover, this book is essential for residents and students seeking to fully understand the complexity of clinical neuroanatomy. Seasoned clinicians will find the book a valuable refresher.
