First published in 2016, Instant Neurological Diagnosis quickly became a must-have for the practicing neurologist looking to acquire the expertise to make rapid diagnoses. This best-selling guide became an indispensable source of diagnostic clues, starting from a patient's appearance all the way down to a directed clinical examination. In this completely revised and updated resource, the authors continue to provide a one-of-a-kind work that illustrates unique neurologic cases with their specific signs and clues, without revealing the actual diagnosis. With the aid of Handles and Flags, the reader is guided toward the correct conclusion.
These powerful diagnostic short cuts - identified as "Handles" and "Flags" - must be used with caution. Armed with the potential to save you hours of valuable time, they may even demonstrate your superior clinical acumen above colleagues. Some might permit a rapid diagnosis, while others warn a clinician to reconsider and think of an alternative solution.
