This comprehensive clinical reference focuses on the challenges faced by neurologists in the management of epilepsy patients suffering from other medical conditions. This is the only book available that provides information on how to treat the unique problems of epilepsy patients who have concomitant medical conditions. The contributing authors, all of whom are experts in the field, discuss different diagnostic and treatment approaches that cannot be found in general textbooks on epilepsy. Emphasizing practical clinical information, this book is a necessity for all neurologists involved in the care of epilepsy patients.
"This volume is a valuable source of clarification, especially on the interrelationship between the disorders, factors triggering seizures, and above all, on the necessity for modifying treatment... Dr. Ettinger, with his particular interest in emotional and psychiatric aspects of epilepsy, and Dr. Devinsky, with his wide range of experience, are ideally suited to consider these issues. They have brought together appropriate and timely reviews that are highly informative and will no doubt lead to improved care and treatment of people with seizures. Thus, this book has far greater than average usefulness both for the clinician and the investigator. It provides background and a baseline that hopefully will lead to further study of the numerous issues raised by the co-existence of epilepsy and other disorders." - from the Foreword by Frederick Andermann
"The editors are to be congratulated for creating a single volume that encompasses information that ordinarily must be pieced together from a variety of sources. This book will help neurologists work more productively with their medical colleagues, thereby enabling patients to lead a lifestyle free from the medical and psychological complications of seizures." - from the Foreword by Steven C. Schachter
