Now available in e-book format is Neurology: A Clinician's Approach. Kristine Ziemba, MD, PhD (Mayo Clinic Arizona) reviewed this title for MedInfoNow:
This is a concise but useful handbook on the clinical approach to patients with neurologic complaints. It is intended for senior medical students or junior residents caring for patients with neurologic disorders. As an instructor in neurology at Harvard Medical School and associate residency program director at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Dr. Tarulli is a credible authority on pedagogy in clinical neurology and he has provided a useful guidebook for neurologists and internists early in their training.
The book covers most neurological symptoms (chief complaints) that physicians might see in a neurology clinic or on an inpatient neurology service. The methodical clinical approach is unique, moving as it does from appropriate questions to ask while taking a history, to clinical pearls found during the exam, to honing in on a diagnosis with appropriate diagnostic tests, and, finally, to basic treatment strategies. This is a useful approach for a book targeting developing physicians.
This is a useful reference in neurology for senior medical students and junior residents. It provides a concise guide to a clinical approach without excessive detail.
