Despite the unadventurous title, this text traverses previously untrammeled territory in the realm of neurologic literature. Providing a comprehensive review of the neurologic side effects of commonly prescribed pharmacological, radiological, and surgical treatments of a wide range of medical conditions, the text does an admirable job of communicating the breadth of neurologic complications of common therapies. In addition, several authors describe medical complications of treating specific neurologic disorders. The information is useful for internists, cardiologists, pediatricians, family practitioners, psychiatrists, surgeons, and neurologists practicing in academic or private arenas.
