This text provides a concise yet comprehensive review of common neurologic disorders. The pathophysiology, presentation, diagnosis, and management of these entities is discussed in detail in a clear, easy to understand format. The focus is on patients presented with vertigo, disequilibrium, hearing loss, pulsatile and non-pulsatile tinnitus, facial nerve weakness, and complications of the otitis media. Vascular tumors and anomalies, trauma to the temporal bone, Meniere's disease, as well as cerebellopontine lesions such as vestibular schwannoma and meningioma will be discussed with special emphasis on clinical applications. The appropriate diagnostic work up and treatment options as well as controversies will be discussed in the context of evidence-based medicine and "best practice" approach. Judicious use of MRI/CT scanning and audio-vestibular testing relevant for each pathology is discussed in detail. Appropriate illustrations and tables will summarize algorithms and protocols for managing these disorders making this text an easy-to-digest medical resource. A reference list is provided.
