Neuro-Ophthalmology Problem-Solving: A Practical and User-Friendly Guide

3543by Jesse Halpern  (Author), Steven B. Flynn (Author), Scott Forman (Author)
Based on their extensive teaching experience, and written for both residents in training and practicing clinicians, this new book offers a simplified yet comprehensive approach to central neuro-ophthalmologic problems faced in everyday practice. The text covers major clinical problems and defines an inclusive, yet relatively brief, list of causes that can produce each problem. The authors avoid the standard decision-tree approach and, instead, define an easy-to-use and easy-to-learn best fit approach. The patients signs and symptoms are compared to those detailed for each of the possible causes for that particular major clinical problem.
