This 7th edition of Dejong’s The Neurological Examination offers practitioners and residents of Neurology an in-depth discussion of neurologic exams that will not be found anywhere else.

Without abandoning classic concepts and science, this definitive source on neurologic examination techniques has been streamlined and updated. The text integrates details of neuroanatomy and clinical diagnosis in an easy-to-read format. Anatomical and exam illustrations help ensure proper technique. Plus, illustrative cases and tables summarize differentials and list clinical findings. With this book as their guide, readers will truly understand the anatomical underpinnings of examination techniques.


• Four-color design
• Updated figures and references
• Text is supplemented by helpful boxes that highlight key points
• When available, evidence-based medical insights are incorporated in assessing the value of specific tests

"In summary, the updated edition represents a worthwhile source of evaluated, evidence-based insights into up-to-date clinical neurological examination and valuable specific tests helping to ensure proper techniques in neurological diagnosis." - European Journal of Neurology Volume 21, Issue 1 January 2014  Page e7.

"Most of us in practice will appreciate the balance of anatomy and pathophysiology here, as we are typically consulting such texts..."
"This textbook, however, can play an important role in medical education at all levels."
