Abstract

Part of the “What Do I Do Now?” series, Movement Disorders uses a case-based approach to cover common and important topics in the examination, investigation, and management of Parkinson’s disease, gait disorders, dystonia, and other movement disorders. Each chapter provides a discussion of the diagnosis, key points to remember, and selected references for further reading. For this edition, all cases and references have been updated and 15 new cases have been added, including the following: genetic testing in Parkinson’s disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, fragile X tremor ataxia syndrome, use of botulinum toxin in dystonia, catatonia, and serotonin syndrome. Movement Disorders is an engaging collection of thought-provoking cases that clinicians can utilize when they encounter difficult patients. The volume is also a self-assessment tool that tests the reader’s ability to answer the question, “What do I do now?”
