Depression in Neurologic Disorders

Diagnosis and Management  

Edited by

Andres M. Kanner, MD, Professor of Neurological Sciences and Psychiatry, Rush Medical College at Rush University, Chicago, IL, USA.

Why should neurologists care about depression?

It is one of the most frequent psychiatric comorbid conditions of neurologic disorders. Not only does it have a negative impact on the quality of patients, but it is also associated with a worse course of the neurologic disease. Yet, more often than not, neurologists have not been trained to recognize clinical depression in their patients.

How should neurologists learn to care for depression?

By reading Depression in Neurologic Disorders, the caring neurologist will gain a practical overview of:

  • clinical manifestations of depression in the major neurologic disorders
  • how to use screening instruments in clinical practice
  • the identification of patients with an increased suicidal risk
  • basic principles of the management of depressive disorders by the non-psychiatrist

 The major neurologic disorders covered in Depression in Neurologic Disorders include:

  • Migraine
  • Stroke
  • Epilepsy
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Huntington’s Disease
  • Dementia
  • Traumatic Brain Injury

The practical approach is enhanced with the use of case studies and ‘take-home pearls’ throughout.

Depression is a common disorder that all neurologists face in their daily clinical practice. Depression in Neurologic Disorders provides the fundamentals of caring for patients who are suffering beyond their diagnosed neurologic disorder.

Synopsis:

The first part of the book begins with an overview of depression, its incidence and manifestations and neurobiological origins; how it's diagnosed; and its relevance to neurology, in particular to suicidality. The second part looks at depression in distinct conditions, in particular: migraine, stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson's Disease, Huntington's Disease, dementia, and traumatic brain injury. This useful guide takes a practical approach, with "tips and tricks" boxes, case studies, points of interest boxes, and take-home summaries.
