Описание: This book contains the latest research regarding the neurodegenerative conditions known as neuroacanthocytosis. Recent advances have identified the range of mutations in the causative genes, shedding light on potential phenotype-genotype correlations. In vitro studies have identified potential protein interactions, which have important implications for pathophysiology, and work on erythrocyte membranes suggests mechanisms for the generation of acanthocytes. Animal models are being generated which greatly facilitate understanding the significance of gene mutations in humans, and provide the foundation for possible therapeutic interventions.

Описание: Providing discussions of all syndromes in which parkinsonism may be a feature, this reference refines nosologic conceptions of parkinsonism, elucidates its cause, and points the way toward future investigative strategies.;Detailing the progress made by clinical neurologists in understanding and managing movement disorders Parkinsonian Syndromes: examines multiple system atrophies, including striatonigral degeneration, olivopontocerebellar atrophy, and shy-drager syndrome; reviews symptomatic parkinsonisms due to structural or vascular alterations, drugs, toxins, and metabolic changes; covers hereditofamilial disorders with parkinsonism; encompasses neurodegenerative syndromes that can not be otherwise classified according to overlapping pathology, mode of inheritance, or etiology; describes several miscellaneous conditions such as hemiatrophy-hemiparkinsonism and basal ganglionic calcifications with parkinsonism; and explores parkinsonism as it relates to the aging process.;Written by over 30 renowned clinical investigators with special expertise in parkinsonisms, Parkinsonian Syndromes is a resource for neurologists, neuroscientists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, physical therapists, general medicine clinicians, internists, and medical students in these disciplines.
Описание: Offers a view on the knowledge of chronic clonal myeloid diseases. This book emphasises on chronic myeloid leukaemia and myeloproliferative disorders (essential thrombocythemia, polycythemia vera, chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis) and myelodysplastic syndromes, oligoblastic leukemias, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria and overlap diseases.
Описание: During the past several decades, a significant international research effort has been directed towards understanding the composition and regulation of the
preocular tear film. This effort has been motivated by the recognition that the tear film plays a critical role in maintaining corneal and conjunctival integrity, protecting against microbial
challenge and preserving visual acuity. In addition, research has been stimulated by the knowledge that alteration or deficiency of the tear film, which occurs in numerous individuals
throughout the world, may lead to desiccation of the ocular surface, ulceration and perforation of the cornea, an increased incidence of infectious disease, and potentionally
pronounced visual disability and blindness.
Описание: Greatly revised, the Second Edition presents an extended survey of this rapidly growing field. Features include two new chapters addressing key forensic issues and recent views on multiple chemical sensitivity, sick building syndrome, and psychosomatic disorders; current data on NIOSH and OSHA exposure levels for industrial toxins;

Описание: Originally published in 2007, this book reflects the enormous advances in our understanding of frontotemporal dementia and related syndromes. The impetus for these advances has come from a number of directions including genetic discoveries, fresh approaches to neuroimaging and improved neuropsychological understanding of the cognitive aspects of the condition. This book provides a much needed review of the status of our knowledge of these syndromes. The book starts with chapters reviewing the history of the condition and describes the presenting clinical, neuropsychiatric and neuropsychological features, before reviewing, in detail, the areas of greatest recent research progress. The book concludes with a chapter proposing a multidisciplinary approach to patient management. Frontotemporal Dementia Syndromes will be essential reading for neurologists, psychologists, psychiatrists and other clinicians interested in cognitive and behavioural disorders, as well as to basic scientists working in the area of neurodegeneration.
Описание: Affecting 4 percent of children and 1-2 percent of the general population, epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders. This guide covers various aspects of diagnosis and treatment. It reflects the report of the ILAE classification core group and the progress made in the diagnosis, classification and treatment of the epilepsies.
Описание: Of the 8 million individuals living with cancer in the United States, up to 800,000 patients have a form of inherited cancer. Inherited cancer syndromes account for 5-10% of all cancers, as evidenced by recent advances in the understanding of such syndromes as Familial Polyposis Syndromes (FAP), Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colon Cancer (HPNCC), and the BRCA1 and 2 breast cancer susceptibility genes. Inherited Cancer Syndromes: Current Clinical Management provides the clinician with a valuable tool for all aspects of patient care in inherited syndromes. Comprehensive, timely chapters present the fundamental principles of genetic counseling and testing, ethical issues, medical-legal issues, and clinical management principles. Chapters on inherited breast cancer, colon cancer, urologic malignancies, gynecologic malignancies, and MEN syndromes provide state-of-the-art information on hereditary risk identification, assessment and management, the role of the genetic counselor, providing optimal patient care, and the important research on the horizon - all written by an expert group of surgical and medical oncologists. Inherited Cancer Syndromes: Current Clinical Management is an important and timely book for surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, general surgeons, colorectal surgeons, trainees in surgery and oncology, and genetic counselors.

Описание: Headache and Chronic Pain Syndromes provides a case-based approach to state-of-the-art evaluation and treatment of patients with common chronically painful conditions. Offering strategies for rapidly evaluating and treating pain complaints by body region, this innovative title also provides patient educational handouts that explain the diagnosis and treatment in easy-to-understand language for each condition. Tools for implementing both medication and non-medication therapies, such as exercise and relaxation techniques, are also included.Each chapter opens with typical presentations of three to five common patient scenarios, including pediatric, adult, and geriatric patients. A targeted approach for patient assessment is provided and applied to each scenario, showing how to rapidly identify important clues to distinguish among common diagnoses, including both benign and malignant causes of pain. Standard treatment regimens are then provided for each patient, along with patient-friendly educational flyers for each common pain condition. Figures and drawings help provide ready identification of these common chronic pain syndromes.Headache and Chronic Pain Syndrome offers primary care practitioners, neurologists, and orthopedists an optimal approach to the evaluation, treatment, and follow-up of chronically painful conditions.
