About the Authors
  • This 1998 book was the first to be dedicated to peripheral neuropathies of immune or infectious origin, which are now known to comprise a substantial proportion of disorders of the peripheral nerves. Many of the most important advances in the field were made by contributors to this volume. There are four sections, dealing with biology and epidemiology, patient evaluation, specific clinical syndromes known to be of infectious or immunologic origin, and therapy and management, including rehabilitation. Neurologists will welcome this comprehensive review of the field at the time of publication, which provides an overview of the pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of infectious and immune mediated neuropathies. It is directly relevant to the everyday management of patients, and will also meet the needs of the basic immunological researcher seeking a general overview.

    • Was the first book to concentrate on this class of disease
    • Editors and contributors are internationally known authorities
    • Covers the field comprehensively, from early developments to more recent advances in pathogenesis and treatment

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: 'To the best of my knowledge Immunological and Infectious Diseases of the Peripheral Nerves is by far the best current single source on the subject … With its convenient size and reasonable price, I certainly recommend it to neurologists, clinicians in other specialities, neuropathologists and researchers.' Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

    Review of the hardback: ' … it has no equal as a comprehensive, accessible, and useful resource for the practising neurologist.' Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry

    Review of the hardback: ' … a useful practical clinical text for every neurologist or clinician involved in the management of patients with these immune and infectious neuropathies, but it also carries up-to-date reviews and references for those who may have a more research orientated interest in this field, where significant advances continue to be made in diagnosis and development of treatment.' Brain
