This is the third edition of the book that was first to fill the gap in textbook information about neurological complications of medical disorders. The increasing length of subsequent editions attests not only to the growing complexity of clinical medicine as a whole, but also to the increasing identification of neurological complications of medical conditions, from HIV and critical care to iatrogenic immune suppression and imaging procedures.
Once again the book is aimed at neurologists and general physicians alike and will be useful to all. In a time when primary care doctors are expected to care for a broader range of disorders and complications than ever before, and when neurologists often are not consulted until the clinical situation becomes very complex or puzzling, this book will be a valuable resource for both groups.
