MD Department of Neurology Morris Levin. Neurology Clinical Case Studies by Morris Levin, MD, Dartmouth Medical School, provides 93 cases describing the most important clinical situations to prepare candidates for the Oral Board Exam. Each case gives step-by-sep analysis of possible diagnoses leading to the correct diagnostic conclusion and then an explanation of the appropriate treatment. This book is useful to neurologists in training because it simulates the process of analysis used in actual practice.

A plethora of horror stories have been promulgated concerning the neurology oral board examination. This rite of passage though will soon be eliminated for current residents due to recent changes by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). However, until these revisions are enacted, neurologists in training are still faced with the daunting task of preparing for this examination.

This case-based book helps candidates prepare for the oral board exams and is a good educational tool for any neurologist. ISBN13:9781890018474. Release Date:August 2003.

The book is divided into two parts. Part 1 is devoted to practical tips on the exam’s structure, its etiquette and preparation. Particular emphasis is placed on reasons for failing the exam.

Clinical case studies have long been recognized as a useful adjunct to problem-based learning and continuing .

Clinical case studies have long been recognized as a useful adjunct to problem-based learning and continuing professional development. Each volume contains around 60 cases that will inform and challenge clinicians at all stages in their careers, and both common and uncommon cases are included.

Presented in a case-based format, each chapter includes several questions that are intended for medical students, residents rotating through neurology, and neurologists looking for study sources. Filling a need for a supplemental resource to use when studying for board exams, particularly the NBME and RITE, Absolute Case-Based Neurology serves as an invaluable guide to neurology rotations, tests and daily practice.

It is in 250 pages, with margins to take and make your own notes (a feature I used and enjoyed). It is in two parts and 18 chapters. The first Neuro Presentations (coma, headache, dizzy, dementia, ataxia). The second is Neuro Disease (vascular, infectious, trauma, demyelinating, metabolic/systemic, movement, Neoplastic, epilepsy, sleep, spinal cord, neuromuscular, pain, pediatric). Each chapter has 4-7 cases. Each case is about 2-3 pages in length. Cases are very interactive and provoking; the questions are followed by the answers/explanations. The case is built in the following manner: history and exam, summarize it, localize (not all), differential diagnosis, obtain further info, narrow the differential diagnosis, management, and prognosis.
In addition, there are informative concise reviews related to the case, for example Status protocol.
I used this book during my oral board preparation, and I found it very helpful. I agree with the two previous reviewers from June 2004.

Well written, topics relevant. I nice review for the boards, but I've pulled it out other times since then to brush up. Very complete but a light weight paperback that you can throw in a bag and take with you. "quick cases" ideal for those times in your life when you want to complete a thought (or case) before returning a page or falling off to sleep.

I'm only 31 pages into this book and I'm already very disappointed in the content.

In general the cases are very simplistic (which is okay b/c you really want to know the "bread and butter" Neurology), however the answers he provides need to be more detailed. The localizations need to be more precise. He also tends to skimp on the counseling portion of answers.

The first case under the dizziness section is particularly concerning. He describes an elderly woman with dysmetria, vertigo and ataxia and states "Brain MRI scan with and without gadolinium, and MRA wold provide the best neuroimaging. If normal, LP wold be appropriate...".

If you say this statement on your oral boards without first mentioning that this could potentially be a cerebellar hemorrhage for which you would order a STAT head CT, you just might fail your oral boards. Not to mention have the patient herniate while your waiting for the MRI tech to clear out space in their tight schedule (in real life).

Be careful with this book!

Fantastic review that helps you think in the style that is tested on the oral boards. An ample amount of cases in which to practice. Not bogged down with irrelevant details. A must-read prior to Part II boards.
