Learn about the clinical symptoms, differential diagnosis, and treatment of this unusual migraine variant in this primer.
  • Neurorehabilitation in Disorders of Consciousness
    In this article, the authors emphasize key factors that influence the course of recovery in coma patients, and review the effectiveness of treatment interventions utilized in the rehabilitation setting.
  • The Acutely Comatose Patient
    This primer presents a pragmatic approach to the differential diagnosis of the comatose patient.
  • Therapeutic Decision Making in a New Drug Era in Multiple Sclerosis
    A new therapeutic era offers renewed hope for patients affected by MS, but it brings with it greater challenges for clinical decision makers. How should you choose the most appropriate therapy?
  • Fingolimod Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis
    The use of fingolimod therapy for multiple sclerosis has been limited by concerns for its safety, especially regarding cardiac effects. What do you need to know to prescribe and monitor it safely?
  • Recognition and Treatment of Neurologic Wilson's Disease
    Wilson's disease has a variable presentation and is often misdiagnosed, potentially leading to severe hepatic and neurologic consequences. But when correctly diagnosed, its easily treatable.
  • Late-Onset Pompe's Disease
    Pompe's disease is a rare, but treatable disorder of glycogen metabolism. Learn about its presentation, diagnosis, and management in this review.
  • Neuroimaging in the Evaluation of Epilepsy
    Learn about recent advances in neuroimaging which have enhanced our ability to identify underlying pathologies in epilepsy, and improved presurgical evaluation in medically intractable cases.
  • Neuroimaging in Neurodegenerative Dementias
    This comprehensive review of neuroimaging in neurodegenerative dementias highlights both structural and functional imaging characteristics of the most common dementia syndromes.
  • The Diabetic Neuropathies
    This review summarizes the clinical features of the most common diabetic neuropathies, along with their management approaches, and provides a brief overview of new therapies under investigation.
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
    The pathophysiology of ALS remains poorly understood, and only one drug has been shown to enhance survival. This article reviews hypotheses regarding the genesis of ALS and potential new therapies.
  • Management of Chronic Myelopathy Symptoms and Activities of Daily Living
    In this review, the authors discuss some of the important clinical management issues that the general neurologist needs to consider in caring for patients with chronic spinal cord disease or injury.
