How do you identify which neurologic syndromes occur due to systemic disease? 

Neurological problems commonly occur in the context of underlying systemic disease, and may even be the presenting symptom of a medical condition that has not yet been diagnosed. Consequently neurologists need to be aware when a neurological presentation might indicate an underlying systemic disorder.

Neurological Disorders due to Systemic Disease provides the tools you need to make these connections. The unique neurologic presentation-based approach relates to the common clinical situations you encounter, including: 

- Headache
- Stroke
- Movement disorders
- Neuromuscular disorders
- Encephalopathies, seizures, myelopathies, neuro-ophthalmologic and neuro-otologic disorders, sleep disorders, and others

Major categories of systemic illness are explored for each presentation to guide you towards a likely cause.  These include: 

- Endocrine, electrolyte, and metabolic disorders
- Systemic autoimmune disorders
