Book information

Through Principles of Neurology we have the privilege of continuing a tradition established 35 years ago by our esteemed teachers Dr. Raymond D.

Adams and Dr. Maurice Victor.

Our friend and colleague, Dr. Robert Brown, ably participated in the eighth edition, adding his expertise in the neurosciences, much to our benefit and that of the book. Principles of Neurology originated from the chapters on neurological diseases in the first several editions of Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine.

The continued expansion of these sections by Adams and Victor, despite repeated commitments to shortening them, led an exasperated Tinsley Harrison to exclaim to Dr. Adams and Victor attracted considerable attention by initiating a new style of pedagogy that emphasized the basic principles of neurology before introducing the disease entities. While the enormous advances in imaging, genetics, molecular biology, and pharmacology have improved our capacity to diagnose and treat disorders of the nervous system, they have not reduced the necessity to understand certain basic principles of anatomy and physiology, to obtain the correct history, perform a capable neurological examination and to cohere them based on a body of clinical knowledge and experience.

We continue the original structure of the book, re-affirming that comprehensive knowledge of clinical neurology is required to meet the challenge of this sophisticated specialty. We have also maintained personal authorship with the hope that a single voice will allow the reader to enjoy the experience of learning the field from two longtime practitioners in a manner similar to the way we learned it from the original authors and their colleagues.

In taking the responsibility of revising this book, we acknowledge that pedagogy in medicine has changed enormously to accommodate technical advances, particularly those in imaging.

However, certain principles seem immutable and they derive from the traditional principles, virtues, and logic of medicine that dominate neurological thinking. Clinical neurology, being an applied science, depends on a set of heuristics that direct the clinician to the best diagnosis and therapeutic plan. This book provides an exposition of clinical material in an order that should allow the reader to obtain a comprehensive view of the field and at the same time appreciate the full breadth and depth of each disease of the nervous tissue.

At the same time we have written the chapters on major diseases in a manner that allows the book to be used as a reference in depth. Certainly, advances in neuroscience inform one's perspective on the nature of disease and produce a fuller appreciation of the manifestations in each patient. A case in point is the large number of previously inexplicable degenerative diseases that have yielded to scientific understanding on the levels of pathology, genetics, subcellular mechanisms, and neurochemistry.

At the same time, therapeutic advances often precede basic understanding of disease and the neurologist has the duty to provide the best possible treatment at the time, even if science has not provided a full explanation or mechanism. Examples abound; we have an incomplete understanding of epilepsy, Parkinson disease and multiple sclerosis but many reasonably effective treatments have been devised.

Adams and Victor's Principles of Neurology, 11e

While the neurosciences are the instruments of advance in understanding disease, the work of clinical neurology is more pragmatic, yet it retains its own form of scholarship. Neurology is not simply a trade in relation to the sciences.

Difficulty in mastering neurology derives from a need to combine considerable knowledge and personal experience with special skills of observation and disciplined thinking. Our goal is to present an assemblage of clinical knowledge, and we hope wisdom, rather than disembodied facts. The book contains information that should be the property of the well-educated physician at all levels, including the medical student, resident, practitioner and academic physician. The neurologist stands at the nexus of the study of the nervous system and includes many aspects of general medicine, psychiatry, neurosurgery, pain management, rehabilitation, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, anesthesiology, critical care and emergency medicine and Neurology serves as Medicine's spokesperson to society on matters such as mental capability, learning and teaching, aging and the brain, death, and disability.

Therefore the breadth of Neurology has directed the liberal inclusion of material in the book. Correct Response: Correct Response: Movement Disorders A year-old man presents with a 1-year history of a right hand tremor, trouble buttoning and a soft voice.

His examination is notable for a pill rolling tremor, bradykinesia and cogwheel rigidity. Which of the following is another cardinal feature of Parkinson disease?

Diagnostic criteria for PD require two of the four features. In idiopathic PD, the symptoms present asymmetrically and although the contralateral side is eventually affected, the asymmetry usually persists throughout the disease course.

The other listed answer choices also occur in patients with PD but they are not cardinal features. Overview of common movement disorders.

Continuum Lifelong Learning Neurol ;16 1 He is concerned because his father had Parkinson disease and he is worried that this may be the first sign of Parkinson. His tremor is not present at rest and is worse when he tries to lift up a cup to his lips.

It improves with alcohol and is worse with stress. His sister has a similar tremor.He inculcated a method for approaching complicated neurological problems in a manageable way.
