by Rajendra B Kenkre

This book is written with a view to give to the readers in depth understanding of important diseases which affect the peripheral and central nervous system. Clinical presentation of the diseases of the nervous system has not changed a great deal over the past seventy years, nevertheless many new clinical patterns have emerged in recent years which need thorough study of basic sciences and resort to laboratory methods and results pertaining to neurochemistry, neuroimaging, genetics immunology. Neuropathology for a student embarking on a career in neurology. Besides understanding principles of general medicine from embryological, anatomical, physiological and clinical point of view it is important to understand epidemiological principles on which prevalence and incidence of diseases affecting the nervous system is recorded as although practice of medicine is changing, we still have to rely on epidemiological studies which give clues to the disease and provide the and thus form the basis of health policy planning for a population. This book contains fifteen chapters and the subject discussed in every chapter is thoroughly referenced with appropriate drawings. Being principally reference work in neurological differential diagnosis it was thought not essential to have separate discussion on Neuropharmacological advances and indeed on neurorehabilitation which do form important part of our approach to neurological sciences in the 21st Century.
