About this Book

A truly global textbook for neurological practice

Neurological disease varies in its presentations and pathology throughout the world. In today's interconnected world, neurologists need to be aware that patients can come from anywhere in the world with presentations and pathologies that may not be typical of their local context.

This unique textbook deals with the differences in etiology, genetics, age of onset and clinical presentations of neurological disease internationally. This is the first book to take a truly global approach to neurological illness.

Consisting of 22 sections and 173 chapters with contributions from experts in many countries, it serves as an invaluable guide for physicians to expand their knowledge of different neurological disorders around the world. More importantly it is a definitive source of practical information to aid diagnosis and treatment.
