Neurological Differential Diagnosis fills the gap between short texts containing little explanatory detail and advanced compendia for those with a good working knowledge of neurological diseases. It is intended for the novice and those numerous physicians who receive inadequate training in the diagnosis of neurological disorders. Understanding the symptoms and signs requires a good knowledge of gross anatomy of the nervous system and supporting tissues. This is achieved by the liberal use of detailed diagrams of exceptional clarity complemented by the author's own concise and practical guidance to diagnosis and treatment, backed up by appropriate case studies. This unique tutorial approach presents the reader with an authoritative view of neurology in practice and will be a valuable companion for all students and practitioners.

This is the best neurology textbook for students, residents and other non neurologists. It covers everything, yet reads like a novel. It has heaps of handy facts and explanations. It is getting old, but this may even enhance the text, as there is no reliance on MRI or other advanced imaging. I started my neurology term expecting to be bored, and this book turned the whole experience around for me. Highly recommend.
