Abstract

This chapter provides clarification of acronyms, brief definitions of signs, and short descriptions of syndromes. The names given to these signs and syndromes are those of the distinguished neurologists who first described them and therefore are of historic interest. Detailed elaboration of some of these will be found in the text. Short outlines of rare syndromes will be added as full discussions cannot be included in an introductory text. By necessity this will only be a selection from the myriad numbers of syndromes and signs to choose from.
