About the book
Neuroanatomic lesion localization is one of the main areas that veterinary students, interns, residents and practitioners struggle when faced with a neurologic patient. It is a common focus for questions on the North American Veterinary License Exam (NAVLE) as well as the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) general board examination for residents in Oncology, Internal Medicine, Neurology and Cardiology.
