Drawing on the expertise of an international team of authors, Case Studies in Movement Disorders is a compilation of illustrative cases, demonstrating a step-by-step approach to diagnosing and managing these complex conditions. An extensive collection of over sixty videos shows both common and uncommon presentations of a wide range of movement disorders, and the accompanying text guides readers systematically through the clinical history, examination and investigation findings, and diagnosis, and finally discusses the clinical issues raised. Both surgical and pharmacological management options are presented, helping readers understand some of the controversies involved in treatment. The cases are drawn from all of the major groups of movement disorders: ataxia, chorea, dystonia, myoclonus, parkinsonism, tics, and tremor. This will be invaluable for both neurologists in training and more experienced professionals seeking to develop their diagnostic skills, especially when faced with uncommon conditions or uncommon manifestations of common disorders.

Short Description
A thorough collection of movement disorders cases, each discussed by international experts and accompanied by illustrative video content.
