This book combines the complexities of neuro-ophthalmologic and neuro-otologic disorders into one concise guidebook. It focuses on the basics of these two challenging subspecialties, encountered by the neurologist, ophthalmologist, otolaryngologist, neurosurgeon, emergency medicine provider, and others.
Comprehensive and succinct, the book contains chapters examining representative case vignettes that highlight typical historical elements and exam findings that aid in diagnosing a specific disease, disorder, or syndrome. Before each heading, chapters offer a brief review of relevant anatomy, physiology, and examination techniques. Additionally, symptom-based tables guide the practitioner to a focused history and examination for rapid real-time triage and diagnosis.
Practical and case-based, Neuro-Ophthalmology and Neuro-Otology is an invaluable resource for practitioners, trainees, and residents in various fields.
"This book is a crucial and welcome addition to neurology texts, particularly for practicing clinicians to utilize as a reference guide... To my knowledge, this is surprisingly the only book I have encountered that combines the two fields of neuro-ophthalmology and neuro-otology in one book. The author has clearly identified a need and filled it by providing this book, which will be indispensable to clinicians and learners in multiple fields of medicine."
-- Olivia Gruder, MD (Thomas Jefferson University) Doody's Review
Despite the bulleted format and concise nature of the book, the author still provides enough detail and relevance to serve as both a reference guide and a review for multiple levels of learners. Medical students will appreciate the union of anatomic localization and clinical relevance. Practicing neurologists, ophthalmologists, neurosurgeons, and otolaryngologists will appreciate the collision of multiple subspecialties to provide a more complete clinical picture. The author clearly meets the goal of unifying these specialties by blurring the lines of where one field starts and the other begins. The author's own clinical experience in residency served as an impetus for the book's creation, and his expertise throughout his years as a published neurologist allowed him to fill this gap in the medical literature.
