Netter's Neurology provides the best of an atlas, an anthology of clinical cases, & an important basic introduction to requisite information needed to diagnose & initiate treatment of various neurologic and neuromuscular disorders. Case vignettes from the Lahey Clinic set the stage for discussion of the basics of specific neurologic disorders, including history, epidemiology, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, testing modalities, therapy, & prognosis. To help readers more easily and clearly conceptualize this complicated body system, more than 350 classic Netter and Netter-style illustrations are included and supplemented by modern neuroimaging, or photomicrography, further defining the anatomy of the specific areas of dysfunction.
