Textbook of Peripheral Neuropathy is a practical but complete reference for neurologists in general practice who are evaluating patients with peripheral neuropathy. The book covers a broad range of neuropathies including mononeuropathy, mononeuritis multiplex, and polyneuropathy (which accounts for the greatest number of cases) and provides an evidence-based approach to testing, diagnosis, and treatment.
The chapters are written by internationally renowned expert contributors with deep clinical experience and contain numerous tables, figures, and algorithms for quick access to key information. The book covers both inherited and acquired diseases, including neuropathies arising from physical injury, diabetes, alcoholism, toxins, autoimmune responses, nutritional deficiencies, vascular and metabolic disorders, medication-induced neuropathies, and idiopathic conditions.
