About the Authors
  • Improved diagnostic sophistication is increasingly enabling neurologists to differentiate between Parkinson's disease and other atypical parkinsonism (AP), such as multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, and dementia with Lewy bodies. The Handbook of Atypical Parkinsonism is a comprehensive survey of all diseases of this category, providing an authoritative guide to the recognition, diagnosis and management of these disorders. Each chapter follows a common structure, commencing with the full basic science of the disorder under consideration, followed by descriptions of the clinical picture and differential diagnosis. Subsequent chapters discuss current and future therapeutic approaches to these difficult conditions. Written and edited by leading practitioners in the field, clinicians in neurology and other specialties will find this book essential to the understanding and diagnosis of this complex group of disorders.

    • Comprehensive discussion of all atypical parkinsonian disorders, with a chapter dedicated to each disorder
    • Detailed descriptions of clinical pictures and their differential diagnosis enable clinicians to differentiate between various diseases on the basis of symptoms, signs and available investigations
    • All chapters follow a consistent structure, facilitating easy navigation and quick reference
