Clinical Signs in Neurological Practice

Published by AuthorHouseBooks
Dear reader, this book is intended to categorize and overview clinical signs in neurological practice with emphasis on the anatomical site of dysfunction and the techniques that help the students who are planning their career as neurologists and physicians with interest in neurology to consume the knowledge offered in this book in localizing and categorizing the lesion at the bed side.In spite of the major advances in neuroimaging and neurophysiology, this did not provide a substitute to the bedside clinical skills. This book, in addition to its offering, is emphasizing on the clinical acumen as the final common pathway for the diagnosis. Systematic approach was followed starting from the cerebral cortex going through the basal ganglia, thalami, brain stem, and spinal cord and ending in the motor unit.Although the theme of this book is the comprehensive clinical orientation, care has been taken to incorporate the recent developments where needed. This book had the advantage of combining adult and pediatric neurology, since adult neurologists often encounter child neurology problems. A touch on the neuroanatomy was inevitable for a better understanding of the signs, besides an addendum at the end of the book with syndromes and diseases tabulated in a way that helps the reader to know the main skeleton of these disorders. The expertise of authors of this book cover both child and adult neurology problems; their experience should give a practical touch to this exercise.Finally, the authors hope that this book will be of immense value to the postgraduate and undergraduate students, residents, practicing physicians and pediatricians.Azhar Daoud, MDAbdul-Muttaleb Al-Sheikly, MD
