This book is designed for the neurologist who (in this day of unusually strict accountability) needs to have at hand an authoritative guide to the diagnostic criteria for all the conditions he or she may meet within clinical practice. While originally conceived as a compendium of diagnostic criteria, the author felt the need to expand the work to include definitions of practically all the terms that are used in neurology today. Some elements of history are also provided. The result effectively represents the tools of the trade for the neurologist in training and a source of information for the practicing neurologist that is both precise and concise.
The first edition was published in 1995. Since then, advances in the definition of many neurological conditions have been made, all of which have been incorporated in the second edition.
