Top 100 Diagnoses in Neurology
Jose Biller, Ilya Kister
editore: Wolters Kluwer Health
"This book offers a quick and effective guide to review and self-evaluate the key aspects of the common 'not-to-miss' diagnoses in day-to-day practice." Abhishek Lenka, MD, PhD, Doody's Review Service "In arriving at a clinical diagnosis, think of the five most common findings (either historical, physical findings, or laboratory) found in a given disorder. If at least three of these five are not present in a given patient, the diagnosis is likely to be wrong." C. Miller Fisher Building on this precept from the great 20th-century neurologist C. Miller Fisher, Drs. Ilya Kister and Jose Biller have identified the five most common findings for the 'top 100' most common and important neurologic syndromes and disorders. The unique format of Top 100 Diagnoses in Neurology includes synopses that tie together the core disease features, illustrations and study questions for each entry, making this book an excellent tool for building a firm knowledge base in neurology and a quick reference for clinicians - neurologists and general practitioners alike. Covers the five core features of 100 of the most important neurologic syndromes and disorders, including polyneuropathies, neurologic vision disorders, movement disorders, epilepsy syndromes, multiple sclerosis, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, opioid overdose, brain tumors, and much more. Icons are used to identify neurologic emergencies and specify disease prevalence (common, rare, very rare). Includes brief introductions to each section that provide an essential clinical context for each area. Features helpful learning tools for each entry, including illustrations of key concepts, mnemonics, clinical pearls; and carefully chosen study questions to encourage further study and test your knowledge. Each entry contains free online references. Helps you quickly refresh your knowledge of specific disorders and ascertain whether your patients' diagnoses satisfy Fisher's "three-of-five" rule.

Plum and Posner's Diagnosis and Treatment of Stupor and Coma
Jerome B. Posner, Clifford B. Sapere altri
editore: Oxford University Press Inc
Plum and Posner's Diagnosis and Treatment of Stupor and Coma, 5th edition, is a major update of the classic work on diagnosing the cause of coma, with the addition of completely new sections on treatment of comatose patients, by Dr. Jan Claassen, the Director of the Neuro-ICU at Columbia New York Presbyterian Hospital. The first chapter of the book provides an up-to-date review on the brain mechanisms that maintain a conscious state in humans, and how lesions that damage these mechanisms cause loss of consciousness or coma. The second chapter reviews the neurological examination of the comatose patient, which provides the basis for determining whether the patient is suffering from a structural brain injury causing the coma, or from a metabolic disorder of consciousness. The third and fourth chapters review the pathophysiology of structural lesions causing coma, and the specific disease states that result in coma. Chapter five is a comprehensive treatment of the many causes of metabolic coma. Chapter 6 review psychiatric causes of unresponsiveness and how to identify and treat them. Chapters 7 and 8 review the overall emergency treatment of comatose patients, followed by the treatment of specific causes of coma. Chapter 9 examines the long term outcomes of coma, including the minimally conscious state and the persistent vegetative state, and how they can be distinguished, and their implications for eventual useful recovery. Chapter 10 reviews the topic of brain death and the standards for examination of a patient that are required to make the determination of brain death. The final chapter 11 is by J.J. Fins, a medical ethicist who was invited by the other authors to write an essay on the ethics of diagnosis and treatment of patients who, by definition, have no way to approve of or communicate about their wishes. While providing detailed background for neurological and neurosurgical specialists, the practical nature of the material in this book has found its greatest use among Internists, Emergency Medicine, and Intensive Care specialists, who deal with comatose patients frequently, but who may not have had extensive neurological training.

Handbook of Neurological Therapy
Alan M. Rapoport, Antonio Gil-Nagele altri
editore: Oxford University Press
This is a practical book on neurological therapy. It is aimed at giving concise and updated answers to busy practicing clinicians in the clinic, ward or emergency department. An evidence-based approach is used, but when there is no evidence or the data are inconclusive, an expert opinion is always being given in order to meet the expectations of the reader. All neurological conditions (common and less common) are discussed; each chapter has a similar format, and contains an initial brief introduction on the epidemiology and clinical features of each disease. The therapy is then discussed, including pharmacological and non-pharmacological, with wide use of Tables & Figures (flowcharts are also included in most of the chapters).
Neurologic Differential Diagnosis
A Case-based Approach
Alan B. Ettinger, Deborah M. Weisbrot
editore: Cambridge University Press
The increasing pressure upon clinicians to see more and more patients generates great concern as to how to offer a comprehensive and thorough diagnostic approach and yet maintain efficiency. Neurologic Differential Diagnosis is the answer. Unlike other texts which are divided into disease entities, this book uses a case study approach to focus on the patients' symptoms. Each chapter is dedicated to a specific presenting symptom or sign and includes a comprehensive, yet succinct table of clinical features to aid clarification of the broad list of diagnostic possibilities. This allows the clinician to quickly reference specific symptoms such as dizziness, mental status change or diplopia; or signs such as foot drop or psychotic behavior, and then immediately generate diagnostic possibilities. Written from the authors' extensive clinical experience, Neurologic Differential Diagnosis is an invaluable text for neurologists and psychiatrists at all stages of training.

Neurologia ortopedica dal sintomo alla diagnosi
Alberto M. Cappellari
The Neurologic Diagnosis
Jack N. Alpert
editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.
Neurology has been viewed as the study of the source of humanity. Personality, intelligence, and mood alterations are manifestations of brain function or dysfunction. Neurology has also been bedeviled with an unjustified assumption that diseases of the nervous system are observable but untreatable. This misconception has been handed down through generations of medical students because of the dearth of sufficient instruction in the early years of medical school. Furthermore, it is commonly asserted that neurologic diseases are uniquely incurable. This fallacious argument, often promulgated by poorly educated physicians, conveniently forgets that most illnesses are incurable. Only when physicians have been in practice for a few years do they recognize the importance of neurologic symptoms and their inability to analyze them. The Neurologic Diagnosis: Practical Strategies for Medical Students and Residents is an introductory text that simplifies the often unwieldy method of making a neurologic diagnosis. Medical students are often intimidated by a deluge of data, extensive differential diagnoses, and have no organizational structure to follow. Diagnostic techniques of general medicine are not applicable. Neurology is a unique specialty since it requires the intermediary step of an anatomic diagnosis prior to proffering a differential diagnosis. Yet the required knowledge of neuroanatomy need not be profound for the student who will specialize in any field other than neurology and neurosurgery. This text is directed to medical students and residents who will all be regularly faced with numerous patients who have neurologic symptomatology. Typical one-month neurology rotations out of four years of medical school is clearly inadequate training to make a cogent neurologic diagnosis, especially since subsequent instruction is commonly provided by upper level residents who have the same background and numerous misconceptions. This is not a comprehensive text. The emphasis in this concise and practical title is on establishing a neuroanatomic diagnosis before formulating a differential diagnosis. In addition, treatment is seldom discussed since it is likely to change radically over time. Focused and succinct, The Neurologic Diagnosis: Practical Strategies for Medical Students and Residents is an invaluable resource for medical students and residents interested in the practice of neurological diagnosis.

L'esame neurologico. Quadri normali e patologici
editore: Piccin-Nuova Libraria
Questo testo è indirizzato agli specializzandi di neurologia ed agli studenti di medicina particolarmente motivati allo studio della neurologia, ma anche a tutti i colleghi (medici di base, medici del Pronto Soccorso, specialisti in oculistica, otorinolaringoiatria, ortopedia, fisiatria e geriatria) che spesso visitano pazienti con possibili patologie neurologiche. La conoscenza di alcune manovre semeiotiche e della terminologia neurologica è sicuramente utile anche ai fisioterapisti perché molti dei loro pazienti sono affetti da patologie neurologiche. Il testo può sembrare di dimensioni più vaste di quelle attese, ma ciò dipende dalle moltissime figure che sono state inserite per rendere più semplice l'apprendimento e la memorizzazione delle differenti manovre semeiotiche.
Alla ricerca dei segni perduti. La diagnosi in neurologia
a cura di L. Lorusso, B. LucciV. A. Sironie altri
Nell'era del neuroimaging e della tecnologia medica è ancora importante conoscere la semeiotica neurologica? La storia dei segni che attraverso l'esame obiettivo del malato hanno consentito in passato e consentono ancora oggi di formulare una precisa diagnosi, non è solo la rievocazione di momenti esaltanti del percorso che ha permesso a valenti medici di legare il loro nome a manovre cliniche o a specifiche patologie. Comprendere il significato di ogni segno neurologico presuppone conoscenza anatomo-fisiologica, richiede capacità di sintesi clinica, predispone alla necessità di porsi sullo stesso piano del malato. Una gestione condivisa e più umana del rapporto medico-paziente è indispensabile al neurologo per esercitare la sua arte, quanto è essenziale al malato per comprendere il percorso verso la possibile guarigione. La progressiva scoperta dei segni descritta in questo volume, che ha determinato il passaggio da una neurologia empirica a una scientifica, è un'occasione per sollecitare il neuroscienziato clinico a usare le neurotecnologie non in sostituzione ma a conferma del corredo semeiotico della patologia.

A Dictionary of Neurological Signs
editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.
The first two editions of the Dictionary of Neurological Signs were very well-received by readers and reviewers alike. Like those editions, this Third Edition, updated and expanded, can be almost as well described in terms of what the book is not, along with details about what it is. The Dictionary is not a handbook for treatment of neurological disorders. While many entries provide the latest treatment options, up-to-the-minute therapies are not discussed in bedside level detail. The Dictionary is not a board review book because it is not in Q&A format but could easily serve in that capacity since each entry is a fairly complete snapshot of a specific disorder or disease. The Dictionary is an alphabetical listing of commonly presenting neurological signs designed to guide the physician toward the correct clinical diagnosis. The Dictionary is focused, problem-based, concise and practical. The structured entries in this practical, clinical resource provide a thumbnail of a wide range of neurological signs. Each entry includes: * A definition of the sign * A brief account of the clinical technique required to elicit the sign * A description of the other signs which may accompany the index sign * An explanation of pathyophysiological and/or pharmacological background * Differential diagnosis * Brief treatment details Where known, these entries also include the neuroanatomical basis of the sign. The Dictionary of Neurological Signs, Third Edition, is an indispensable reference for all students, trainees, and clinicians who care for patients with neurological disorders.
