The central nervous system comprises the brain and spinal cord. Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. It deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and diseases involving the central and peripheral nervous system.The evaluation of a patient with neurological disorder involves history taking and the neurological examination: clinical evaluation. The information obtained from the clinical evaluation is important to determine where the problem exists in the nervous system: the key process in developing the differential diagnosis. This process however is considered difficult because of the sheer complexity of the nervous system and hence dreaded by medical students all over the world. Clinical Neurology Made Easy is a book on history taking and examination in Neurology. It outlines the logical order of evaluating a patient with a neurological disorder. The first part of the book details the history taking in neurology noting the significance of the symptoms. The second part continues with the neurological examination dedicating a chapter to each aspect of the nervous system for clearer and easier assimilation. Certain examinations which are no longer popular are also described as they still give important information regarding the diagnosis. The challenge of evaluating the unconscious patient necessitates the dedication of a chapter to the unconscious patient in this book.In addition, there has been an overreliance in investigations in recent times to make a diagnosis irrespective of the fact that a great percentage of diagnosis in neurology can be made by good clinical acumen. Clinical Neurology Made Easy is therefore a reminder of the importance of a detailed methodical clinical evaluation. It also gives assurance to doctors and neurologists in poor resource settings that the diagnosis of neurological disorders is not impossible but rather, it is within reach with good clinical evaluation.
