Series What do I do now? Movement disorders
What do I do now.
Summary Patients suffering from movement disorders pose many challenges for the clinician, and even the most experienced of practitioners can arrive at the point where diagnostic, work-up, treatment, or prognostic thinking falters. Authored by three leading experts in the field, Movement Disorders walks the reader through the important principles of examination, investigation, and management for each of the common types of movement disorders. Applying a case-based approach, each chapter in this volume of the ""What Do I Do Now?"" series in neurology presents the reader with a real-time patient encounter, detailing the thinking behind diagnostic and treatment decision-making.
