Movement Disorders

Unforgettable Cases and Lessons from the Bedside


Description

Movement Disorders: Challenging Cases is unique in capturing both the “human element” of Movement Disorders, from the perspective of patient and clinician. Additionally it offers a “case-based” format that walks the reader through how a patient presents, what the challenges are, and what is the on-going thought process in the clinician's mind.Clinical case studies have long been recognized as a useful adjunct to problem-based learning and continuing professional development. Movement Disorders collects over 70 of the most memorable and challenging movement disorders from the world's leading authorities in this specialty. Compelling case vignettes covering the entire phenomenology of movement disorders are presented succinctly but descriptively to walk the reader through the diagnostic process—much like being in the examining room with a master clinician. Each case follows a set format consisting of four sections: The Case; The Approach; The Lesson; Reference and Suggested Readings. Imaging findings and other illustrations amplify the discussion where pertinent. An appendix with assessment scales and MD classification tables further enhances the utility of the book as a teaching and learning tool for clinicians.
