It is generally acknowledged that treatment of the causes of disease, if possible, is more desirable than treating symptoms, although in neurological practice only the latter is often possible. Identifying the presence of a neurological disorder may nevertheless be the prelude to treatment of the pathogenic disease process, the more so as advances in the understanding of neurological disorders progresses and new treatments become available. This article reports a case which illustrates the change from treatment of symptoms to treatment of causes in neurological disease.
