Now in its third edition, Ultimate Review for the Neurology Boards is the definitive study guide for anyone preparing for the neurology board exam, RITE, or MOC exam.

The book is organized into five sections for easy access. Section I covers basic neurosciences, including neurochemistry, clinical neuroanatomy, and genetics.

Section IV covers pediatrics, while the final section contains nine chapters on subspecialties, including neurorehabilitation, adult and child psychiatry, neurourology, neurooncology, and more.

Each chapter has been fully reviewed, revised, and updated to reflect current knowledge and practice and presents the information in an outline format, ideal for test preparation. Crucial topics and high-yield data are highlighted in bold or italic for maximal retention. With several new features, such as suggested readings and a “cheat sheet” at the end of each chapter, this third edition of Ultimate Review for the Neurology Boards is essential reading for anyone taking the neurology boards or MOC exam.

Revised and updated second edition of Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders: Clinical Guide to Diagnosis, Medical Management, and Rehabilitation, the only comprehensive but practical source of core information on multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating disorders. Intended as a ready reference for clinicians who provide ongoing care to MS patients, this book combines evidence-based science with experience-based guidance to present current standards and management protocols from leading MS centers.

Beginning with the scientific underpinnings of MS for clinicians, the book proceeds through diagnosis, including initial symptoms, diagnostic criteria and classification, imaging, and differential diagnosis, and onto approved treatments for the various MS types and emerging therapies. Later parts of the book discuss symptom management and rehabilitation with chapters focusing on specific side effects, along with considerations for special populations, comorbidities, societal and family issues, and related autoimmune disorders that are often mistaken for MS.

Throughout, chapters include lists of Key Points both for clinicians and for patients and families, and management pearls are boxed for quick reference and clinical utility. Illustrations, tables, algorithms, assessment scales, and up-to-date MRI imaging enrich the text, making this a wide-ranging clinical reference for all members of the MS care team.
