about this item

Neuro-ophthalmology lies at the interface of Neurology and Ophthalmology. Neuro-ophthalmologists typically receive referrals from general ophthalmologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and endocrinologists caring for patients with pituitary tumors and thyroid disease. Typical neuro-ophthalmologic problems including visual loss, diplopia, nystagmus, optic neuritis, papilloedema, visual field defects, ptosis, and pupil abnormalities. Some neuro-ophthalmology cases are life-threatening medical emergencies requiring prompt diagnosis and management some cases are manifestations of multisystem disease. This book presents 50 clinical cases, both commonly and rarely occurring, collected by experts in the field. Each case is presented as a diagnostic and management challenge as found in clinical practice. High quality clinical photographs and images will bring the case to life alongside the diagnostic process and management decisions of experienced specialists, with clear diagrams and tables to summarise key points effectively. This book will challenge, entertain and instruct the reader focusing on issues in diagnosis in an area that many doctors in training and general consultant neurologists and ophthalmologists find challenging.
