Some of the most exciting recent developments in neurology have occurred in the management of neurologic emergencies. This case-based second edition of Emergency Neurology features 13 new chapters as well as significant updates to chapters that appeared in the first edition and that provide practical approaches incorporating these clinical advances. The topics include acute stroke management and stroke prevention, status epilepticus, neurologic toxicities from cancer immunotherapy, newly appreciated autoimmune and paraneoplastic diseases, the prevention and management of delirium, and many others.

“Can I tell you about a new case?” is a common refrain among medical colleagues who strive to learn from each other and from our patients. Sharing cases serves as an internal check to our personal systematic approaches to the management of various diseases and are a delightfully interactive way to stay up to date in medicine. A number of clinical presentations that we see lead to diagnostic or therapeutic impasses (i.e., “What do I do now?”). We have tried to identify important examples and sort through them in a comprehensive but practical way. Our point of view is often that of an attendee at a morning rounds discussion, starting with key details of a relevant case, followed by a pragmatic discussion of the differential diagnosis, testing options, and management strategies.

This book is for clinicians at all levels of training and in all fields of medicine who treat patients with urgent or emergent neurological illnesses. This book can serve as a reference for common clinical questions or a focused primer to prepare the busy consultant for a number of eventualities on service. We hope that sharing our passion for caring for patients suffering from neurologic emergencies deepens your knowledge and clinical practice.
