About this book

A Primer of Neuroimmunological Disease is a significant new resource for anyone interested in conditions such as multiple sclerosis(MS), myasthenia gravis, and neurological infections.  It is a practical and balanced guide to the diagnosis and treatment of neuroimmunological disease. A Primer of Neuroimmunological Disease distinguishes itself by providing a range of features not generally included in texts on neuroimmunology. These include broad presentation of information in the form of figures and tables; strong cohesion among topics by focusing on a few prototypic neuroimmunological diseases, which serve as a foundation from which to explore other neuroimmunological diseases; a single author perspective, with references across chapters; and a focus on the overlap between neuroimmunological and neuroinfectious diseases.  Neurologists, immunologists, infectious disease specialists, neuroscientists and others interested in neuroimmunological diseases such as MS will find A Primer of Neuroimmunological to be a state-of-the-art resource.

Reviews

“‘A Primer of Neuroimmunological Disease’ is a welcome attempt to provide basic introduction to the non specialist readers … . The author has an innovative and simple style, addressing to both the basic scientists and clinicians. … The author has provided many coloured clinical and microphotographs which add value to chapters; tables and flow charts make the reading simple, easy to understand and interesting. … This book is recommended for all neurology residents and practioners.” (U.K. Misra, Indian Journal of Medical Research, Vol. 137, January, 2013)

“‘A Primer of Neuroimmunological Disease’ by Andrew R. Pachner gives a concise overview of the most important neuroimmunological diseases … . The specific diseases are presented by employing a standard approach … and are underlined by illustrations (figures and tables), case presentations and historical details that make the book good reading. … In summary, this book is recommendable especially for beginners interested in neuroimmunology to get a concise and well-structured introduction about classical neuroimmunological diseases and beyond.” (Nathalie Braun, Swiss Archives of Neurology and Psychiatry/Schweizer Archiv für Neurologie und Psychiatrie, Vol. 164 (1), 2013)
