Each case contains a history of the present illness, past medical and surgical histories, medications, allergies, personal and family histories, review of systems, physical and neurological examination findings, diagnostic test results, possible diagnosis and discussion, treatment, prognosis, and list of references and suggested readings. The text is illustrated in b&w.
