This very interesting  Atlas More Details was conceived as a result of interactions between Prof. Kalyan B Bhattacharyya and Prof. Satish V Khadilkar, during conferences and the DM/NBE co-examinerships. They envisaged a project encapsulating interesting and informative clinical case scenarios, images, and electrophysiological patterns in the form of an atlas. Unlike a routine didactic textbook, this atlas comprises real cases from the three-decade long practice of these masters of neurology and hence flows directly from their brain and heart. It is primarily addressed toward young neurology residents and practitioners and is based on the premise that neurologists learn their craft not just by reading the textbooks but by getting exposed to vital cues in history, examination, and observation of patients supported sometimes by typical radiological and electrophysiological patterns. It is common to see experienced clinicians making a diagnosis almost instantaneously, when the young students are struggling to put the jigsaw puzzle together. This is because these senior neurologists retain visual memory of similar cases seen before. This is the underlying foundation of Atlas of Neurology – A case-based approach.

The atlas is organized into three sections: clinical, radiology, and electrophysiology. The clinical section describes 180 case vignettes supported by appropriate pictures and commentary ranging from historical perspective and the eponyms to the latest genetic basis, wherever necessary, thereby giving a certain depth to the discussion. Out of these, 50 cases are supported by crystal clear still photographs and the remaining 130 cases are in the form of videos, included in the accompanying DVD-R0M. Watching these videos gives a feeling of seeing the patient live, for which both authors and the publishers deserve rich compliments. The section on electrophysiology includes most of the patterns seen in routine clinical practice and often shown by examiners during DM/DNB neurology examination.

All in all, this atlas is a well-rounded compilation of almost entire spectrum of clinical neurology based on long and rich experience of its clinical–academic authors. I fully agree with the forward by eminent neurologist Prof. BS Singhal that “this book will serve as a quick reference and is a welcome addition to libraries.” Let me further add that this atlas is going to be consulted, preserved, and loved for long time by students of neurology, which all of us are!
