This updated and expanded Fourth
Edition 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 and concise.
The structured entries in this
practical, clinical resource provide summaries 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 pathophysiological
and/or pharmacological background; differential diagnosis; brief treatment
details; and where known, the neuroanatomical basis of the sign.
A Dictionary of Neurological
Signs, Fourth Edition, is an
indispensable reference for all students, trainees, and clinicians who care for
patients with neurological disorders, and could also be used in preparation for
exams, since each entry is a snapshot of a specific disorder or disease.
