Samuels and Ropper's Neurological CPCs from the New England Journal of Medicine is a collection of clinicopathological cases (CPCs) authored by two of the most frequent discussors of the storied "Clinical Pathologic Conference" first introduced by Richard Cabot in the early 1900s and publishedin the "New England Journal of Medicine."
