This book is organized into 13 chapters. It highlights the areas or subjects in which significant advances have been made which also have relevance to the treatment of patients. It covers a number of important aspects of different infectious diseases of the nervous system including acute bacterial meningitis, tuberculosis of the nervous system, spirochaetal infections of the nervous system, and fungal diseases of the central nervous system.
This book is intended for use by physicians who deal with the problems of neurological disorder on a daily basis, whether they are neurologists, neurologists in training, or those in related fields such as neurosurgery, internal medicine, psychiatry, and rehabilitation medicine.
