Merritt's Neurology, 12th edition

by Herbert P. Goodheart
  • Hard Cover
The thoroughly updated Twelfth Edition of this classic retains the organization, practicality, and readability that makes Merritt's Neurology one of the most popular texts among neurologists, primary care physicians, and residents reviewing for psychiatry or neurology boards. In 183 short chapters, the book provides the essentials clinicians need on symptoms/signs, diagnostic tests, and neurologic disorders of all etiologies. For this edition, Timothy A. Pedley, MD, Chair of the Department of Neurology at Columbia University, joins Dr. Rowland as co-editor. Coverage includes separate chapters on autism, autosomal recessive ataxias, and autosomal dominant ataxias, and new chapters on endovascular neuroradiology, parkinsonian syndromes, Lewy body dementias, frontotemporal dementia, vanishing white matter, vasculitis, normal pressure hydrocephalus, neuromyelitis optica, Kennedy disease, spinal muscular atrophy, complex regional pain syndrome, disorders of DNA translation, the immune restoration inflammatory syndrome (IRIS), and Hashimoto encephalopathy. Most chapters have been updated to reflect advances in molecular genetics. A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank. =Table Of Contents SECTION HEADINGS SYMPTOMS OF NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS DIAGNOSTIC TESTS INFECTIONS OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM VASCULAR DISEASES HYDROCEPHALUS AND CEREBRAL EDEMA TUMORS TRAUMA SPINE AND SPINAL CORD DISORDERS BIRTH INJURIES AND DEVELOPMENTAL ABNORMALITIES GENETIC DISEASES OF THE CNS MITOCHONDRIAL DISORDERS NEUROCUTANEOUS SYNDROMES DEMENTIA MOVEMENT DISORDERS HEREDITARY ATAXIAS MOTOR NEURON DISEASES PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHIES DISORDERS OF THE NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION MYOPATHIES DEMYELINATING DISEASES PAROXYSMAL DISORDERS AUTONOMIC DISEASES SYSTEMIC DISEASES AND GENERAL MEDICINE PSYCHIATRY AND NEUROLOGY ENVIRONMENTAL NEUROLOGY
