Product description

The Oxford Handbook of Neurology is a practical and concise, quick reference guide for use on the ward and in clinical settings. It includes a wealth of information and invaluable clinical guidance passed down by generations of neurologists, but not often available in textbooks. The first section deals with taking a neurological history and examination, including the skills necessary to make a neurological assessment. The second section serves as a useful reference of neuroanatomy with neurological diagrams of the brachial and lumbosacral plexuses as well as the individual peripheral nerves in the limbs, dermatomes and cross-sectional views of the brain stem and skull. Section three outlines differential diagnoses and investigations for common neurological presentations such as headache, loss of consciousness and acute focal neurological deficit. The fourth section covers prevalence, pathophysiology, clinical features, investigations and management of neurological conditions including stroke, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. Further sections deal with head injury, tumours, neuroradiology, and neurophysiology including EEG, nerve conduction tests, EMG, and evoked potentials giving indications and abnormalities. The handbook also contains useful guidelines, laboratory tests and how to interpret results, information on patient support groups, neurological eponyms, useful addresses and neurological disability scales in common use. This is the essential handbook for neurologists in training and in practice, and all those involved in the care of patients with neurological disorders. It should find a place in the hands of all those caring for neurological patients.

Author information

Dr. Hadi Manji completed his undergraduate training in medicine at Trinity Hall, Cambridge and the Middlesex Hospital. He initially trained as a General Practitioner in Edinburgh and changed to neurology subsequently working at the National Hospital and L'Hopital Kremlin-Bicetre, Paris. In 1996 he completed his MD dissertation on 'Neurological Complications of HIV Infection'. He was appointed consultant in 1997. Apart from general neurology, Dr Manji has specialist interests in peripheral nerve disorders and neuroinfectious disorders including HIV and tropical neurology. He has taught and lectured on various neurological topics in India, Malaysia, Singapore, Kenya and Dubai. He is currently involved in teaching and helping to set up the undergraduate neurology curriculum at the Roman Catholic medical school in Beira, Mozambique. Mr Neil Dorwood graduated at St Mary's Hospital. He trained in neurosurgery on the North Thames rotation. He is now a Consultant Neurosurgeon with special interests in pituitary, meningioma and complex spinal surgery. Mr Dorwood is Honorary Senior Lecturer with research projects in ultrasound elastography of cerebral tumours and the biomechanics of spinal prostheses.

Review quote

Dr Manji and co-authors have put together an excellent summary and guide to neurology, which is both aimed at symptomatic presentation, and disease-based. The book is excellently written, packed with wise clinical points and covers a wide differential diagnostic base... it covers so much but in such a short volume. I would recommend it to senior and junior colleages and I found reviewing it highly educational (it now lives in my briefcase)... a considerable achievement and well worth the modest price. British Journal of Hospital Medicine This book will rightly become a staple for those in speciality neuroscience posts, whilst serving clinical medical students and those in their early postgraduate employment equally well. There is just the right level of information to grasp the fundamentals of any disease entity new to the reader, and to refresh those inevitable lacunes in the ever-expanding knowledge base. For those at Consultant level this book will still remain a ready and useful source of information in the clinic. Dr Martin R Turner, John Radcliffe Hospital As a medical student, I found this book extremely useful throughout my neurology block. Fits into my bag easily, so can just open and read it on the bus. Someone who is a expert in the area may (though I don't know) find fault, but at my level it gives me what I need at the moment. Amazon Customer Reviews
