Neurology is a branch of medicine concentrated on diagnosing, treating, and managing disorders of the brain and nervous system. Neurological conditions include epilepsy, stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson's disease. The nervous system is vulnerable to various disorders, ranging from trauma and infections to tumors and strokes.
Vascular disorders in the brain can cause a stroke and/or transient ischemic attacks (TIA)
Infections, such as meningitis, encephalitis, polio, and epidural abscess can cause neurological issues
Neurological conditions may be caused by structural disorders, such as brain or spinal cord injury, carpal tunnel syndrome, or tumors.
Functional disorders include such as headache, epilepsy, dizziness, and neuralgia
Degeneration can cause Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Huntington chorea, and Alzheimer's disease
