Reviews:

“Lawrence I. Golbe, a distinguished expert on Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, presents a timely guide for practicing clinicians. An essential reading and reliable roadmap in dynamic days.”

“Professor Golbe’s guide is the story, well told and easily read, of a passionate clinician’s long journey towards understanding of this rare disease. It is comprehensive, a literary landmark of 2018, and it gives optimism about eventual cure.”

—John C. Steele, M.D.


Description:

This brief, clinically-focused volume is informed by Lawrence I. Golbe’s three decades of research and tertiary clinical care in progressive supranuclear palsy, a complex disorder with rapidly changing diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. It is an ideal source for the general neurologist seeking a refresher and the primary care provider, neurological nurse, or physical, occupational or speech therapist who must address their patients’ specialized needs.

 A Clinician’s Guide to Progressive Supranuclear Palsy emphasizes early diagnostic signs, medication options, non-pharmacologic management and palliative care. It offers a quick overview of the complications of PSP most likely to prompt an ER visit; a widening spectrum of PSP variants; and ample description of the genetics, epidemiology, natural history, pathology, molecular biology and neurochemistry of PSP. The PSP Rating Scale used in the book is a convenient tool for clinicians in routine practice and the leading PSP clinical measure world-wide. Golbe provides a practical and useful guidebook to help all clinicians learn and battle this complex disorder.
