Practical, case-based resource helps students integrate content from neuroanatomy and clinical courses
Clinical Neuroanatomy: A Case-Based Approach by Douglas Gould and Gustavo Patino presents nervous system anatomy in a clinically-integrated manner, making it an ideal learning tool for medical students. Forty-seven succinct patient presentations feature a step-by-step walk-through of the lesion localization, correlating neuroanatomy with signs and symptoms. Each consistently organized case also includes the patient complaint, salient medical history, physical exam findings, discussion of symptoms, differential diagnoses, and potential tests.
- High-yield, patient-focused vignettes challenge students to "find the lesion" and propose differential diagnoses
- Images provide an illustrative review of relevant anatomy and impacted pathways
- A visually-rich appendix provides a quick anatomical guide to upper and lower motor neuron manifestations, the central nervous system, and lesion locations
- Questions at the end of each section help students develop the ability to apply anatomy knowledge to the clinical setting
This is a must-have resource for medical students and clinicians seeking to apply neuroanatomy concepts to the initial patient approach. It is also an invaluable prep tool for the USMLE® or any other high-stakes exam covering neuroanatomy.
