Each chapter in this revised text covers a major etiologic category of neurologic disease. The presentations of clinical disorders are complete and yet all of them fit into a single, compact volume. The author presents clinical and laboratory data very concisely and accurately. He outlines therapeutic measures crisply. The style is lively and easy to read. The author has added a number of new sections on recently described metabolic disorders of the nervous system in infants and in adults. He has also added new material and new tables in many of the sections including, for example, migraine, convulsive disorders, and syncope. The general format of this text remains unchanged from the first edition in 1955. However, the extent of the revisions in this edition makes the previous edition to some extent out-of-date.
This fourth edition contains many new, well-reproduced illustrations particularly those of roentgenographic contrast studies and of pathologic material.
