The Neurology of the Elderly

This is a personal but authoritative guide written by two experienced clinicians for those practitioners and hospital specialists faced occasionally with a neurological problem in an elderly patient. The authors give practical guidance in the diagnosis and management of common neurological problems in the elderly: problems such as "confusion" and dementia, gait disturbance, visual problems, incontinence, disturbance of consciousness and loss of use in the hands. The problem-oriented, clinical approach is tailored to the needs of specialists looking for supplements to the comprehensive texts that describe classical history-taking and examination methods but, in many cases, do not help solve the problems encountered in everyday practice
