Abstract

This online resource addresses the basic questions of clinical neurology, which include where the disease process is located, and the nature of the disease process. It reviews the makeup of the cells within the central nervous system and the development of the regions within the central nervous system, followed by a detailed anatomical overview of the nervous system, starting at the spinal cord, proceeding to the brain stem, diencephalon and cerebrum. It focuses not only on localized diseases caused by infectious diseases, trauma, tumors, and vascular lesions within the central nervous system, but also these diseases within the systems of the brain and spinal cord. Over 250 real cases with associated MRI or CTs and any pathological findings from these patients illustrate numerous disorders and fully explain the nature of the pathology. Also included are six problem solving sessions in which the student must identify the ongoing disease process, what caused it, and how best to treat it. Throughout the discussion the authors also correlate the neurological findings to the underlying anatomy of the region.
