Review Text

  • By Rosario Trifiletti on January 6, 2012

    All neurologists and psychiatrists should read this book. Osler is to Medicine as Einstein is to Physics.After reading it, you will get a profound sense that medicine today is very very broken. What doctor today has the time to study and describe patients in the incredible detail and accuracy of Osler? Where is today's Osler - he or she are certainly not one of those doctors on television promoting their vitamins and diet products. Osler was a champion of therapeutic nihilism - and he was and, to a large extent, still is, right.If you know anything about chorea - you will realize that Osler is describing primarily three conditions:1. A very old disease - Sydenham chorea - "Chorea major"2. A very new disease - PANDAS/PANS - "Chorea minor"3. A very complex disease - Hereditary chorea - primarily Huntington's disease but many others making up the "olla podrida" of Chorea.In case your wondering, I graduated from Johns Hopkins Med, where we worship Osler second only to Christ.

    This is a publishing of the author Osler who wrote on Chorea before 1923. From my knowledge in pediatrics it is still not fully understood, I have seen chorea in 2 videos parents have made and once when I was with Dr CR Jones in Connecticut. It is a good book for basic knowledge, the down side; they digitalized the copy from the original the print quite small. Read in bright light (:
