Neurologic Disorders due to Systemic Disease provides the tools you need to make these connections. The unique Neurologic presentations-based approach relates to the common clinical situations you encounter, including: Headache Stroke Movement disorders Neuromuscular disorders Encephalopathies, Seizures, Myelopathies, Neuro-Ophthalmologic and Neuro-otologic disorders, Sleep disorders, and others Major categories of systemic illness are explored for each presentation to guide you towards a likely cause. These include: Endocrine, electrolyte, and metabolic disorders Systemic autoimmune disorders Organ dysfunction and failure, and critical medical illness Systemic cancer and paraneoplastic disorders Systemic infectious disease Complications due to drugs and alcohol Vitamin and mineral deficiencies Written by a leading cast of experts, with a practical approach including ‘things to remember’ for each presentation, Neurologic Disorders due to Systemic Disease should be on every neurologist’s desk.

By reading Depression in Neurologic Disorders, the caring neurologist will gain a practical overview of: clinical manifestations of depression in the major neurologic disorders how to use screening instruments in clinical practice the identification of patients with an increased suicidal risk basic principles of the management of depressive disorders by the non-psychiatrist The major neurologic disorders covered in Depression in Neurologic Disorders include: Migraine Stroke Epilepsy Parkinson’s Disease Multiple Sclerosis Huntington’s Disease Dementia Traumatic Brain Injury The practical approach is enhanced with the use of case studies and ‘take-home pearls’ throughout.
