Neuroinfections presents 35 subjects, each with a different neurologic infectious or inflammatory disorder. A short vignette provides salient clinical symptoms and signs, laboratory studies, spinal fluid and imaging findings for each patient. A highly focused discussion leads the reader to thefinal diagnosis. Important features of the history, neurologic examination, findings on CSF and imaging are emphasized. There is no other book that provides a careful case description that includes all the neurologic features of 19 neurologic diseases produced by virus, as well as cases of bacterialmeningitis and other infections produced by spirochetes, protozoans and prions, as well as inflammatory diseases of the nervous system of unknown etiology. A unique feature of the book is that every patient described is a real-time case that the author has seen or on whom he provided consultation. Anyone who reads every case in this book will know the essentials needed to diagnose and care for patients with infectious or inflammatory diseases of thenervous system.
Don Gilden, M.D., is Louise Baum Endowed Chair and Professor in the Department of Neurology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
