The most helpful and practical neurology guidelines



The Neurology Lounge will be incomplete without guidelines-what can we do without them? To come up with a list I took the easy path and searched a database of neurology checklists I am working on for an app. Guess how many guidelines there are? I found 120! 120 guidelines neurologists should know about! This surprised me. As the lounge doesn’t have a bookshelf large enough to accommodate them all, I scaled the number down to my most important 30.

Here then are my top 30 neurology guidelines-all linked.

The list is on the blogs sidebar for easy reference.

Do you agree with my top 30? Do you have any suggestions or updates? Feel free to comment.

Here is a pdf of my top 120 Neurology guidelines.

  1. Dear mister Imam,
    I try wherever and whenever I can to inform doctors about NF2 , because it’s so much more then the common know bilateral vestibular schwannomas.
    And because of that, there have to be a good guideline how to follow up the patients that are suffering (and still dying, like my daughter) from NF2
    Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) is an autosomal-dominant disease, characterized by bilateral vestibular schwannomas, multiple central nervous system (CNS) tumors, skin tumors, and juvenile cataract.
    I hope that you’ll understand my concern. It’s a disease that can let you loose your hearing, sight, sense of smell, ability to speak and to swallow, to walk, and always there’s pain. The pain is hard to control. Not all patients are suffering from the same symptoms, but when you are early diagnosed you have about 15 years (average) to live.
    I have a Twitter account: @NFtwee,
    (Twee is Dutch for two, I’m from The Netherlands)
    Thank you for taking the time to read my request.
    Yours sincerely
    Angela Kop Jansen


      1. Maybe that’s the problem, I can see the guidelines, also the one about neurofibromatosis, which only is about nf1, but not the checklists. I’m not a doctor, so maybe I haven’t access to the checklists, but if you say so, that there’s also attention for nf2, then that’s for me a clear answer. Thank you again!
