Neuro oncology Part 3 Neurological Disorders in Systemic Cancer Book Review:

This volume, the third part of Neuro-Oncology is, in a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach, devoted to the theme of "Neurological Disorders in Systemic Cancer", focusing on issues confronting neurologists in their daily practice. Metastatic disease of the nervous system afflicts about a quarter of all patients with cancer. One chapter is devoted entirely to the origin and mechanisms causing metastatic disease of the nervous system. The neurological complications of hematological neoplasms, including the leukemias, lymphomas, and paraproteinemias, are reviewed in depth, as is the stunning progress made in unravelling the mechanisms of paraneoplastic syndromes of the nervous system. For this intriguing group of disorders, separate attention has been paid to the underlying changes in molecular biology, to the general diagnostic approach and to the characteristics of each of the paraneoplastic syndromes of the central and peripheral nervous system, often associated with specific tumors. All aspects of these disorders are extensively covered in this volume, providing the reader with a working knowledge and useful reference system for understanding the spectrum of neurological disorders that may develop in systemic cancer. Neuro-Oncology will assist the clinical neurologist and other specialists dealing with nervous system complications of cancer in arriving at a well-defined diagnosis and establishing an effective and thoughtful management plan.

The Neurologic Examination Book Review:

Whereas most book about the neurologic examination are disease and anatomy oriented, The Neurologic Examination: Scientific Basis for Clinical Diagnosis focuses on a pathophysiological approach to the nervous system. The authors emphasize that the scientific interpretation of symptoms obtained from carefully taking the patient's history and noting signs found during physical examination are essential in the diagnosis of neurologic diseases, even if laboratory testing, such as electrophysiology and neuroimaging, are more widely used. This book aims to provide a bridge from the basic sciences such as anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and molecular biology to the neurologic symptoms. Neurologic examinations provide the foundation for diagnosis, and only after a thorough and expertly executed examination can one begin to incorporate laboratory testing and treatment. The Neurologic Examination: Scientific Basis for Clinical Diagnosis, based on the widely successful Japanese book Diagnosis of Neurological Diseases (Igakushoin, Japan, second edition 2013) by Dr. Shibasaki, hopes to revitalize the use of neurologic examinations before jumping into laboratory testing. Doing so can help cut down on time, patient and physician anxiety, and unnecessary testing expenses. This book is a must-read for all practicing neurologists, residents, and medical students. Key Features Include · The chapters are arranged in order of the actual steps in a neurologic examination; · Highly illustrated with figures and tables indicative of the neurologic signs and symptoms that may appear during the given step; and · 99 discussion boxes are inserted throughout to provide a more in-depth look at particular topics without interrupting the reading flow of the text.
