Localization in Clinical Neurology, 7e

By Paul W. Brazis, Joseph C. Masdeu, & José Biller
ISBN: 9781496319128 
Publication Date: 2017

The seventh edition of this text is again directed at “frontline” clinicians caring for patients with neurologic disease processes who are confronted with the “Where is it?” of neurologic disorders. Much new material has been added reflecting multiple additions to the neurologic literature concerning neuroanatomy and principles of neurologic localization. There is still no substitute for an accurate neurologic history and examination to focalize appropriate neuroimaging and electrophysiologic studies to diagnose neurologic problems.
