Abstract

Neuroinfections presents 35 subjects, each with a different neurologic infectious or inflammatory disorder. A short vignette provides salient clinical symptoms and signs, laboratory studies, spinal fluid and imaging findings for each patient. A highly focused discussion leads the reader to the final diagnosis. Important features of the history, neurologic examination, findings on CSF and imaging are emphasized. A unique feature of the resource is that every patient described is a real-time case that the author has seen or on whom he provided consultation. Anyone who reads every case in this book will know the essentials needed to diagnose and care for patients with infectious or inflammatory diseases of the nervous system.
