This new atlas unravels the complexity of more than 200 major neurologic disorders seen in study and practice. Using exquisite Netter artwork as well as brand-new illustrations, it represents a single, highly visual source for key information on diagnosis and management of disorders of the brain, spine, nerves, and muscle. A masterful combination of illustrations, text, and tables clarifies anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology and offers state-of-the-art guidance on anatomic localization, differential diagnosis, and management. Succinct tables make it easy to review each disorder's pathophysiology, clinical findings, laboratory studies, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, management, and clinical course. And, a compact, pocket-sized format makes reference easy and convenient!
