Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders
Handbook of Clinical Neurology Vol. 100 (Series Editors: Aminoff, Boller and Swaab)
This volume provides valuable insights into hyperkinetic disorders related mainly to basal ganglia and pathology. It is divided into comprehensive chapters that encompass a broad and diverse group of diseases and syndromes that are characterized by abnormal, involuntary movements.
Clinicians will find a plethora of information, including extensive discussions of choreoathtoid diseases like Huntington's. Additional chapters focus on topics including, but not limited to, spinocerebellar degenerations, neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation, immune-related chorea, cancer-related paraneoplastic syndromes, myoclonus, essential tremor, dystonia, tartive dyskinesia, and tics and stereotyped movements in children.
Advancements in treatment protocols for these syndromes and diseases are also presented. Each chapter serves as an authoritative reference on its topic, making this handbook ideally suited for neurology and psychiatry residents, practicing neurologists and psychiatrists, and specialists in movement disorders.
