About this book


As scientific research expands the scope of neuropathology, the amount of information that both student and practicing pathologists must assimilate and master can be challenging, and at times even daunting. In Neuropathology Review, Richard A. Prayson, md, thoroughly summarizes in outline form the essential elements of the neuropathology curriculum for all those seeking a concise up-to-date overview of the subject. Topics range from basic information on the spectrum of neurologic-related disease to pertinent pictorial examples of many neuropathologic conditions. For each topic there are self-assessment tests based on both textual and pictorial material, along with sample answers and explanations designed to aid comprehension and understanding.
Concise yet comprehensive, Neuropathology Review provides an effective and easy-to-use refresher course for those working pathologists wishing to update their skills, as well as for students and residents preparing to take board exams in neuropathology.

"This is a well organized outline of neuropathology that is most useful for neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and pathology residents studying for board exams. Although there are no references, residents can easily identify gaps in knowledge using the outline and board-type questions from this book...Photographs are of good quality and show the classic features of the lesions depicted...This book is especially useful to residents who are learning neuropathology independently, but will also help direct learning objectives for residents on neuropathology rotations...The comprehensive outline, well-selected photographs, pertinent questions and answers, and thorough index help a reader learn important concepts and direct his further study of neuropathology."-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

"It serves as a useful revision guide to those who know some neuropathology, and a learning aid for those of us with virtually zero experience of it." - ACP News
