The topography of the brainstem is complex, and even experienced neurologists find it challenging to localize brainstem lesions and diagnose brainstem disorders. This richly illustrated book provides a comprehensive review of brainstem disorders and presents the clinical knowledge necessary for diagnosis. The opening sections document the brainstem neuroanatomy and discuss current diagnostic methods. The entire spectrum of clinical findings in brainstem disorders is then described, and topodiagnostic aspects of the neurological findings are explained in detail. The descriptions of brain stem disorders are consistently structured and are supported by many MR images and short case reports. In addition to primary brainstem lesions, such as vascular brainstem syndromes, other disorders are considered that do not exclusively show brainstem symptoms or signs, e.g., multiple sclerosis. This book will serve as an invaluable reference work for neurologists in clinical practice or further education.

Balance Disorders: A Case-Study Approach is the first reference to address balance disorders from a case-study perspective. The text reflects the dual perspective of a neurologist and otolaryngologist and covers both medical and surgical treatments. Three groups of case studies focus on various aspects of the evaluation of the patient with vertigo or balance disorder, patients with common balance disorders, and cases whose balance is disrupted by unusual diseases. Cases become increasingly difficult in moving through the text. Each case is based on an actual patient and points to a clearly stated teaching focus. Each also contains questions and answers, and a summary of points for review.
