Concise Neurology 1st Edition

Concise Neurology presents neurology content in a logical sequence within each of ten chapters. Virtually every topic of interest to clinicians is covered in one or two pages to facilitate efficient review of the core concepts in diagnosis and treatment for each syndrome or disease. The author has maintained a thematic unity across related pages, which allows for random reading to be almost as fruitful as sequential reading. For example, a reader who opens the “anticoagulation” page will find a capsulized review of the heparin, warfarin, and thrombolysis stroke trials and the evidence supporting the current therapeutic guidelines. Flipping through neighboring pages will rapidly refresh the position of the clinically relevant thrombophilias in relation to the coagulation pathway, indications for lifelong anticoagulation, causes of hyperhomocysteinemia, and the bare bones of the most important etiologies of strokes in the young.

The book presents higher level content than the student “In a Page” text, covers each topic in more depth, and addresses issues related to pathophysiology and neuropathology of diseases. Concise Neurology will be a welcome resource for busy practitioners, residents, fellows, medical students, and allied health care professionals in the neurosciences who require a rapid, readable overview of a complex subject.


Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach 1st Edition

Neurology is primarily characterized by a variety of diseases which seem very similar and are therefore difficult to distinguish between. Skill at differential diagnosis is therefore absolutely paramount.

Neurological Differential Diagnosis is a streamlined handbook of prioritized differential diagnosis, to be used both in clinical practice and for exam review.

By presenting differential diagnosis in order of frequency and importance, this book provides a practical handbook for clinicians in training, as well as a potential resource for quick board review. Whilst the book covers the most important syndromes and disease entities, readers are referred to other texts for more exhaustive differentials. By limiting differentials in this way – to the most likely and most serious diagnoses – the reader can more easily recall relevant disease processes when faced with a particular clinical situation, whether it be a patient in the emergency room or a difficult question on the board examination.

The book specifically targets neurology residents and fellows, with overlap to neurosurgery and psychiatry. Internal medicine physicians with an interest in neurological problems and medical students looking for an edge in clinical neuroscience would also benefit from this text.

The content is primarily mid-level material, in a pedagogic format.

In order to organize the students’ thought processes concise tables and line drawing templates are included. The book is organized into broad chapters by type of disorder and some overlap occurs between particular chapters.

From the Back Cover

Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach provides a practical, problem-based differential diagnosis for the entire spectrum of neurological disease.
The unique aspect of this book is that the differential diagnosis lists are prioritized by listing the most common possibilities first. Furthermore, less common diagnoses that are potentially fatal or disabling in the acute period (diagnoses that “you don’t want to miss”) are also highlighted. So the most common and the most dangerous disorders are given greater weight than rare or slowly evolving conditions that are less urgent, like a top 10 list of most common clinical neurological scenarios.

Moreover, each differential also contains characteristics that help distinguish the specific diagnoses. Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach is a user-friendly and easily understandable guide to the most common and most dangerous neurological conditions.

Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach has been written for practitioners and medical trainees with an interest in neurological diagnosis. This includes neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry residents, also internal medicine or family medicine residents, and, of course, medical students. Primary care practitioners should also find the organization of this book useful in their daily practice.



Atlas of Neonatal Electroencephalography 4th Edition

“This book has been incorporated with available information and current guidelines, and presents a comprehensive view available for professionals including trainees, technologists and experienced neurologists related to neonatal EEG and epilepsy. I believe this book will be a very useful reference for epileptologists meeting their clinical needs concerning the interpretation of neonatal EEG.”

–Jin Jun Luo, MD, PHD, Temple University, Neurological Cases

This comprehensive atlas presents the clinical practice of neonatal electroencephalography (EEG) through text, references, and detailed figures demonstrating normal and abnormal features of the neonatal EEG from the most premature infant to one month post-term. Each chapter contains dozens of full-page EEG images, along with detailed legends that place them in context, to emphasize specific components of the neonatal EEG as a benchmark for recognizing signature characteristics and interpreting clinical data. For the new Fourth Edition, Eli Mizrahi and Richard Hrachovy, established authorities in neonatal neurophysiology, have distilled the advances of the last ten years and provided the latest and best references for each chapter, updating their indispensable atlas to reflect current research and practice throughout.

Atlas of Neonatal Electroencephalography is a singular atlas, unrivaled in the breadth of its coverage and level of detail in presenting examples of normal and abnormal recordings of neonatal EEG patterns at varying young ages.
