Description:

Parkinson′s disease is increasingly understood as a spectral of several entities rather than a single disease. Parkinson′s disease in Daily Practice takes the premise that Parkinson′s should be viewed as a syndrome with multiple clinical phenotypes and histopathological features. No single pathophysiology can be ascribed with confidence to any single patient. The clinician needs to be meticulous in analysing the specific history and presentation of each patient.This text provides a concise overview of current understanding of Parkinson′s Disease including 25 case studies by internationally renowned leaders on diagnosing and managing the many different facets of the disease.
