“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. Abundantly illustrated throughout, Case-Based Neurologyoffers an overview of a wide range of common neurological conditions. Organized by chief complaint and presented in a consistent format, each case includes history, “stop and think” questions, physical examination, laboratory testing, imaging findings, diagnosis, and discussion, including differential diagnosis and treatment. References and suggested readings follow for further study.
Case-Based Neurology provides a broad selection of cases drawn from all major areas of neurology including critical care and trauma, epilepsy, movement disorders, stroke, neurodegenerative diseases, spinal cord pathologies, neuro-oncology, neuromuscular and peripheral nervous system disorders, neuro-immunology, and neuro-infectious diseases. As the reader works through the cases, the importance of careful history taking, thorough examination, and ordering appropriate diagnostic studies is reinforced as it becomes apparent that the same chief complaint can lead to totally different diagnoses. Controversies in management are addressed within the case discussions to highlight differences in treatment philosophy and help sharpen clinical acumen.
I am a PGY3 neurology resident and have found this book to be extremely helpful. I almost didn’t buy this book due to the questionabe reviews, but I ultimately decided to take the risk because I was disappointed with the other case-based neurology textbooks I had purchased. I have been very impressed with this book, and it mirrors clinical cases one sees during neurology residency particularly well. The images are high quality, and the explanations and tables are detailed and succinct. I have bought many neurology books and have been using this as one of my main three books (I am also using the Clinical Neurology book by Cheng-Ching and the Color Atlas of Neurology by Rohkamm). Those three have been my reference books for much of the end of my PGY2 year and beginning of PGY3 year. I can’t speak to why there are many reviews that are all 5-stars and on the same day, but I do highly recommend this book
