About this title:
Part of the "What Do I Do Now?" series, Neuroimmunology uses a case-based approach to cover common and important topics in the examination, investigation, and management of central and peripheral demyelinating diseases, vasculitis, and other immune system related neurological disorders.
Each of the 40 concise chapters provides a discussion of the diagnosis, key points to remember, and selected references for further reading. For this new edition, all cases and references have been updated and new cases have been added, including POEMS, CASPR2 Antibody Syndrome, Isaac’s Syndrome, Histiocytosis, and Churg-Strauss.
Neuroimmunology is an engaging collection of thought-provoking cases that clinicians can utilize when they encounter difficult patients. The volume is also a self-assessment tool that tests the reader’s ability to answer the question, "What do I do now?"
- Covers both central nervous system disorders and disorders of the peripheral nervous system
- Written in an easy-to-follow format that emphasizes key learning points
"The presentations are succinct and summarize just what a clinician would want to know about diagnosis, new aspects of pathogenesis, and treatment. Most who will read the book will read it cover to cover so as not to miss any of the clinical pearls revealed by these interesting cases. Congratulations to the authors for summarizing much of the burgeoning field of neuroimmunology for the average neurologist in this highly readable, concise compendium." – Brian Weinshenker MD, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.
