Movement Disorders collects over 90 of the most memorable and challenging movement disorder cases from the worldís leading authorities in this specialty. Compelling vignettes covering the entire phenomenology of movement disorders are presented succinctly but descriptively to walk the reader through the diagnostic processómuch like being in the examining room with a master clinician. Each case follows a set format consisting of four sections: The Case; The Approach; The Lesson; Reference and Suggested Readings. Imaging findings and other illustrations amplify the discussion where pertinent.
