This book takes a problem-oriented approach to the evaluation of common symptoms presenting to medical students. It begins with guidance in history taking and examination leading the student on to neurological examination. The following sections outline all the common presenting symptoms, such as forgetfulness, dizziness or pain, and relate them to the spectrum of neurological conditions and diseases. Some case histories are used to illustrate problems and the book ends with a section of MCQ’s.

This is the second in a new series which aims to help medical students to think like doctors. By combining a symptom and problem-based approach with systematic coverage, the book appeals to instructors and students on traditional and integrated courses.
