Steven L Lewis graduated from Yale University with a BA in Molecular Biochemistry and Biophysics in 1978, received his medical education at the Stanford University School of Medicine in 1983, and completed his internal medicine internship and neurology residency at the University of Chicago, completing this training in 1983. He is currently Professor of Neurological Sciences at Rush University Medical Center, where he serves as Associate Chairman of the department, Head of the Section of General Neurology, and Director of the Neurology Residency Program. Dr Lewis is the Section Co-Editor for Continuing Medical Education for the Journal Neurology, and immediate past-Chair of the A.B. Baker Section of Neurologic Education for the American Academy of Neurology (AAN). Dr Lewis was the Neurology Book Editor for the Medical Knowledge and Self-Assessment Program-both MKSAP 13 (2004) and MKSAP14 (2006)- for the American College of Physicians, and is the sole author of the book Field Guide to the Neurologic Examination, published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins in 2005. He chaired the February 2008 issue of Continuum: Lifelong Learning in Neurology issue on The Neurological Manifestations of Systemic Disease, and was Guest Editor of the April 2009 issue of Seminars in Neurology titled The Neurological Complications of Medical Disease (which also used neurologic-syndrome-based article titles).
The book presents a practical approach to the diagnosisand management of neurological syndromes in the contexts ofsystemic disease, and should be on every neurologist sdesk. (European Journal of Neurology, 22 April2013)
