Why guidelines? This may be the question many people would ask. The fact is many common neurological diseases are commonly treated by primary care physicians, eg. Stroke, headache, Neuroinfections, Parkinson's disease, etc. Often, it is not possible for them to keep up with the changing trends, both in the diagnosis and management. It would benefit both the patients and treating physicians if they have updated information with the current practice guidelines. With this thought in mind, it was planned, during my tenure as President of IAN, to bring out the "Guidelines for management of common neurological disorders." Fortunately, IAN already has subsections in various disciplines, wherein a group of dedicated people have taken interest in the topic and are updated with the advances. The guidelines have been contributed by experts in respective fields. The guidelines for epilepsy are already published by Indian Epilepsy Society as "Guidelines for Epilepsy Management in India" (Gemind). Hence, this topic is not covered here. I thank all the contributors for their cooperation, interest and the hard work they have put in bringing out this issue. I thank all the convenors of subsections - Drs. Madhuri Behari, J M K Murthy, U K Mishra, Kameshwar Prasad, Ravishankar and Uday Muthani. The Editor of AIAN, Dr. Sanjeev Thomas, has been kind enough to give the finishing touches to the various articles and bring it up as per the requirement of the journal. I also thank Dr. C Meshram, Honorary Secretary of IAN, for his cooperation and interest in bringing out this issue.

The entire guidelines are being published as a special issue which can be a ready reckoner for the practicing neurologists and physicians. Finally guidelines remain just that - as guidelines - not as a gospel truth! They only guide the physician to take appropriate decision for that individual patient.
