About this book

This book provides a practical guide to the field of neuromuscular pathology including muscle, peripheral nerve, and skin biopsies with biopsy interpretation. Divided into three parts, the book begins with introductory chapters that review muscle, nerve, and skin biopsy indications and procedures, normal muscle and nerve histology, and common muscle and nerve pathology. The 28 myopathy case chapters in Part 2 and 11 neuropathy case chapters in Part 3 illustrate the clinical and pathological features of many neuromuscular diseases, demonstrate the indications and utilities of biopsies, discuss clinical and pathological differential diagnosis, update the individual disease management, and summarize pertinent clinical and pathology pearls for each case. 

A Case-Based Guide to Neuromuscular Pathology will function as an indispensable reference for neurologists and pathologists looking to understand the utility of muscle, nerve, and skin biopsies. This book will also aid neurology residents, neuromuscular fellows and neuropathology fellows in preparing for questions related to the muscle and nerve pathology in their in-service and board exams.
