New York/Stuttgart – “Topical Diagnosis in Neurology, Fifth Edition,” recently published by Thieme, has a new, expanded format that provides a clear, integrated presentation of anatomy, function, and disorders of the central nervous system and serves as a quick reference for practitioners and trainees alike. It has a logical, thematic structure, with useful summaries at the beginning of each chapter and color-coded section headings that enable readers to distinguish between neuroanatomical and clinical material at-a-glance.

Topical Diagnosis in Neurology, Fifth Edition is an ideal reference for neurologists and neuroscientists who correlate neurologic diseases to anatomic location to complete a diagnosis or understand a clinical syndrome.  It is also an essential tool for trainees and advanced students who need a solid grounding in key neurofunctional relationships.
