Part of the "What Do I Do Now?" series, Women's Neurology uses a case-based approach to cover common and important topics in the examination, investigation, and management of neurologic disorders in women. Each chapter provides a discussion of the diagnosis, key points to remember, and selected references for further reading. The book addresses a wide range of topics including reproductive health, pregnancy, and healthy aging, and is suited for physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who practice in internal medicine, neurology, obstetrics, and gynecology. Women's Neurology is an engaging collection of thought-provoking cases which clinicians can utilize when they encounter difficult patients. The volume is also a self-assessment tool that tests the reader's ability to answer the question, "What do I do now?"
