How to Get Rid of Neurological DiseaseTweet
Clinical neurology is a diverse and complex subject.
History, symptoms and signs of Neurological Disease
The methods of recording the history and basic examination are outside the scope of this chapter. Notes should read chronologically and portray the story given by the patient, or relative. Pattern recognition - interpretation of history, symptoms and examination - is very reliable. Practical experience is vital. There are three critical questions:
- What is/are the site(s) of the lesion(s)?
- What is the likely pathology?
- Does a recognizable disease fit this pattern?
This is the essence of clinical diagnosis.
