Cutaneous Lymphoma: Diagnosis and Treatment

cutaneousby John C Hall (Author), Brian J Hall (Author)

Drs. John C. Hall and Brian J. Hall have assembled world leaders on this ever-changing topic of Cutaneous Lymphoma and to explore the advancements in research. The text first discusses the new classifications of cutaneous lymphoma. Epidemiology is then reviewed. A general approach to the patient suspected of having a cutaneous lymphoma is outlined. Discussion of diagnosis, histopathology, molecular genetics, and treatment of each subgroup is discussed. Precursors and mimics, which make this such a fascinating group of diseases, are reviewed. Systemic considerations of this primarily cutaneous disease are also covered. Molecular genetics of cutaneous lymphomas that have helped advance all of medicine are discussed, and finally, the future of this dynamic area of medicine is detailed.

Clinical Neuropsychology and Cognitive Neurology of Parkinson’s Disease and Other Movement Disorders

Ph.D. Alexander I. Troster
>The book provides an up-to-date account of the neuropsychological, cognitive-neurological, and neuropsychiatric aspects of movement disorders. The past ten years have seen an explosion of research covering non-motor aspects of Parkinson’s disease and, more recently, movement disorders such as essential tremor, dystonia, corticobasal syndrome, progressive supranuclear palsy, and multiple system atrophy. It is often these neurobehavioral features that become troubling to the patient: they are sometimes difficult to recognize and treat, are associated with diminished patient and caregiver quality of life, and may hasten disease progression, loss of independence, and institutionalization. This book discusses the most recent diagnostic and treatment guidelines for such cognitive and psychiatric conditions in Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, while providing practical tips and strategies for general assessment.
The rapid accumulation of research in this field makes it increasingly difficult for one or two people to author a comprehensive text in an expert manner. The world-class team assembled for this volume succeeds in covering widely diverse areas such as the pathology, neuroimaging, assessment, and treatment of an ever-growing set of neurobehavioral features of movement disorders — cognitive impairment and dementia, depression, apathy, anxiety, psychosis, and impulse control disorders. The text also surveys fundamental knowledge about basal ganglia function and dysfunction, assessment and evaluation techniques applicable to a range of movement disorders, and quality of life issues more broadly.
