Diagnostic Tests in Neurology: A Selection for Office Use. This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract This book is highly recommended to all internists and general practitioners. It is not a textbook of neurology. It is not even a textbook of physical diagnosis in neurology.

It is, in the vernacular of the medical student, a "book of pearls." The whole emphasis of the book is on clinical versus laboratory diagnosis, and the introduction is devoted primarily to a discussion of the various aspects of this question. No tirade against laboratory tests, it does, nevertheless, request a reevaluation of the criteria all too generally accepted as indications for these tests. As the author states, laboratory procedures are never a substitute for clinical observation and often seem necessary only because the clinical examination has not been adequate.
