Neuro-Ophthalmology: Diagnosis and Management is a highly organized and uniform textbook designed to bridge the gap between a handbook and an encyclopedia. Drs. Grant T. Liu, Nicholas J. Volpe, and Steven L. Galetta present their expertise through this highly visual resource that features full color throughout, extensive illustrations, and a DVD-ROM with videos and more. The second edition includes major updates to reflect advances in migraine, multiple sclerosis treatments, neuroimaging, and more. This is your one-stop source of information both for understanding the underlying presentation, pathophysiology, neuroimaging, and diagnostic studies in neuro-ophthalmology, as well as the ideal diagnostic, treatment, and ongoing management tools for all neuro-ophthalmic conditions. ***The eBook versions of this title do not include the DVD-ROM content from the print edition.

  • Combines extensive illustrations and cross references with tables, outlines, and flow-diagrams to provide you with everything you need to understand the underlying presentation, pathophysiology, neuroimaging, and diagnostic studies in neuro-ophthalmology, along with the ideal diagnostic, treatment, and ongoing management tools for all neuro-ophthalmic conditions.
  • Features reviews of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology based on clinical and pathological observations in humans without the extensive discussion of experimental literature involving non-human primates and other animals for an extremely focused clinical resource excellent for practice and preparing for professional examinations.
  • Includes coverage of the neurological examination and the bedside neuro-ophthalmic evaluation of comatose patients that demonstrates how the examination can be used to confirm a diagnosis arrived at from the patient history.
  • Features comprehensive updates to all chapters with complete revisions to coverage of multiple sclerosis, migraine, and neuro-imaging ensuring that you have the most up-to-date clinical tool available.
  • Separates the History and Examination, Neuro-ophthalmic History, and Neuro-ophthalmic Examination into two distinct chapters―Neuro-ophthalmic History and Neuro-ophthalmic Examination―to provide a more focused approach to each topic.
  • Includes an expanded illustration program with full color throughout, revisions 20% of existing figures, and 20% more figures than before for a more accessible and visually appealing reference.
  • Contains a DVD-ROM with video of eye movements, eyelids, pupils, and examination techniques, along with fully downloadable tables, neuroimages, and figures so you can access a real-time learning environment and enhance your presentations.

About the Author:

Grant T. Liu, MD, Associate Professor of Neurology and Ophthalmology; Nicholas J. Volpe, MD, Assistant Professor of Neurology and Ophthalmology; Steven J. Galetta, MD, VanMeter Professor of Neurology and Ophyhalmology; all of the university of Pennsylvania School of Medicine; Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania; Scheie Eye Institute; Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA

From The New England Journal of Medicine:

Reading this book was a pleasure. The three authors have a wealth of experience, and their book is uniformly high in quality, authoritative, cohesive, down to earth, and easy to read. It has none of the unevenness and missing or overlapping topics so common in multiauthored books. It is probably the best-illustrated, most comprehensive single-volume textbook on neuro-ophthalmology available today.

The book is divided into four sections. It opens with a practical review of the neuro-ophthalmic history and examination. The next section, on disorders of the afferent visual pathways, begins with an overview of the topical diagnosis and diagnostic testing of diseases of this system. Subsequent chapters cover disorders of the retina, the optic nerve, and the intracranial visual pathway that cause visual dysfunction. The chapters entitled ``Retinal Disorders,'' ``Disorders of Higher Cortical Function,'' ``Functional Visual Loss,'' and ``Visual Hallucinations and Illusions'' are particularly good. The third section, on efferent neuro-ophthalmic disorders, covers the pupils, facial-nerve dysfunction, cranial-nerve and gaze palsies, nystagmus, and abnormal eye movements. There is an excellent chapter on diseases of the orbit as they relate to neuro-ophthalmology. The last section discusses headache, facial pain, and disorders of facial sensation, all of which are common symptoms in nearly every field of medicine.

Each chapter follows a well-organized outline, in which a review of the relevant neuroanatomy, symptoms, and signs is followed by detailed discussions of presentation, pathophysiology, diagnosis, neuroimaging, diagnostic studies, and management of the diseases. The numerous tables allow for quick reference to entities more or less likely to be encountered. The authors venture outside of neuro-ophthalmology to list detailed endocrine, systemic, and imaging characteristics of the various disorders. The book is illustrated with high-quality, clearly labeled neuroimages and images of the fundus. There is an extensive list of up-to-date references (most from the late 1990s) at the end of each chapter; they include both the original sources and review articles for those who want to delve deeper into the subject.

There are two minor irritants, which I suspect are related to attempts to keep the price down. The figures and tables are commonly one page and occasionally two pages ahead of the related text, resulting in a certain amount of flipping of pages. The photographs of the fundus would have been more useful had they been reproduced in color. A minority of the black-and-white photographs of the fundus scattered throughout the text are reproduced in a central collection of 55 color plates, without any legends for the plates or cross-referencing with the original figures in the chapters. More pages to be flipped!

In their preface, the authors write,

Our hope was to offer a book that could serve both as a guide for diagnosing and managing patients with neuro-ophthalmic problems and a one-volume textbook containing in-depth discussions of neuro-ophthalmic topics and disorders. With just three authors, our aim was to create a highly organized and uniform textbook, extensively illustrated and referenced, that would bridge the gap between neuro-ophthalmic handbooks containing tables, outlines, and flow-diagrams and neuro-ophthalmic encyclopedias.

This book is everything that they hoped for.
