Prominent neurologists and movement disorders experts from around the world logically and systematically review the major movement disorder emergencies, instructing the reader on how optimally to recognize and manage these problems. The authors comprehensively cover a broad range of disorders, including acute dystonic reactions, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, startle syndromes, and tic emergencies, and stress the importance of certain obvious diagnoses such as Wilson's disease, dopa-responsive dystonia, and Whipple's disease, in which delayed diagnosis in less emergent situations can lead to slowly evolving and often irreversible neurologic damage with tragic consequences. Patient vignettes at the beginning of each chapter focus the reader's attention and highlight the urgency of the problem.

From the Back Cover:

Although patients with movement disorders nearly always present as outpatients, there are certain situations in which patients may present to the emergency room or in the hospital with emergencies. In Movement Disorder Emergencies: Diagnosis and Treatment, prominent neurologists and movement disorder experts from around the world logically and systematically review the major movement disorder emergencies, instructing the reader on how optimally to recognize and manage these problems. The authors comprehensively cover a broad range of disorders, including acute dystonic reactions, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, startle syndromes, and tic emergencies, and stress the importance of certain obvious diagnoses such as Wilson's disease, dopa-responsive dystonia, and Whipple's disease, in which delayed diagnosis in less emergent situations can lead to slowly evolving and often irreversible neurological damage with tragic consequences. The chapters are practical in emphasizing the keys to diagnosis and treatment, but do not skimp on the underlying science, thereby providing in one reference source what is critical to know. Patient vignettes at the beginning of each chapter focus the reader's attention and highlight the urgency of the problem. Practical and patient-based, Movement Disorder Emergencies: Diagnosis and Treatment offers neurologists and emergency medical personnel an indispensable guide to successfully diagnosing and treating these important but previously unexplored areas of neurological disorders.

Review:

From the reviews: "The editors have compiled a unique and excellent review on the challenging topic of movement disorder emergencies...the authors have provided outstanding examples of various rare conditions that are considered movement disorder emergencies...this is a very new and important contribution to the neurologic literature." Weighted Numerical Score: 94 - 4 Stars! - Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal "In this slim volume, the editors give a brief introduction to movement disorders ... . This is a nice clinical book directed to ‘front-line’ doctors but with an emphasis I think on those in adult neurology especially those in adult neurology training. ... I think that the book deserves a place in any hospital that sees emergencies in children." (John B. P. Stephenson, European Journal of Paediatric Neurology, Vol. 10, August, 2006) "Movement Disorder Emergencies is written for residents, general neurologists, fellows, and specialists in movement disorders. Importantly, much of the information here is not routinely covered in the standard texts on movement disorders, neurological emergencies, or intensive care unit neurology. ... evolved from the editor’s highly successful course at the annual AAN meeting; if you missed it, or took it but need a refresher, here is a second chance." (Stephen G. Reich and Baltimore, Annals of Neurology, Vol. 58 (5), November, 2005)
