This is a practical book on neurological therapy. It is aimed at giving concise and updated answers to busy practicing clinicians in the clinic, ward or emergency department. An evidence-based approach is used, but when there is no evidence or the data are inconclusive, an expert opinion isalways being given in order to meet the expectations of the reader. All neurological conditions (common and less common) are discussed; each chapter has a similar format, and contains an initial brief introduction on the epidemiology and clinical features of each disease. The therapy is thendiscussed, including pharmacological and non-pharmacological, with wide use of Tables and Figures (flowcharts are also included in most of the chapters).
Carlo Colosimo is MD in the Dipartimento di Scienze Neurologiche at Universita La Sapienza in Italy.
