How do you identify which neurological syndromes occur due to systemic disease?rnNeurological problems commonly occur in the context of underlying systemic disease, and may even be the presenting symptom of a medical condition that has not yet been diagnosed. Consequently neurologists need to be aware when a neurological presentation might indicate an underlying systemic disorder.rnNeurologic Disorders due to Systemic Disease provides the tools you need to make these connections. The unique Neurologic presentations-based approach relates to the common clinical situations you encounter, including:n* Headachen* Stroken* Movement disordersn* Neuromuscular disordersn* Encephalopathies, Seizures, Myelopathies, Neuro-Ophthalmologic and Neuro-otologic disorders, Sleep disorders, and othersrnMajor categories of systemic illness are explored for each presentation to guide you towards a likely cause. These include:n* Endocrine, electrolyte, and metabolic disordersn* Systemic autoimmune disordersn* Organ dysfunction and failure, and critical medical illnessn* Systemic cancer and paraneoplastic disordersn* Systemic infectious diseasen* Complications due to drugs and alcoholn* Vitamin and mineral deficienciesrnWritten by a leading cast of experts, with a practical approach including 'things to remember' for each presentation, Neurologic Disorders due to Systemic Disease should be on every neurologist's desk.
