Acquired Neuromuscular Disorders by Corrado Angelini (Editor)This book provides state of the art information on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of a range of inflammatory, autoimmune, and idiopathic neuromuscular disorders. The opening section discusses the differential diagnosis of acquired myopathies based on clinical, electrophysiological, muscle biopsy, and serological criteria, with special focus on the role of electromyography and antibody testing. Each of the relevant clinical entities is then discussed in detail, the coverage including, for example, myasthenia gravis, polymyositis, immune-mediated neuropathies, multifocal motor neuropathies, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, paraneoplastic neuropathies, and diabetic polyneuropathy. Clear guidance is provided on currently available treatments, with descriptions of the latest advances in physiotherapy, drug therapy, and respiratory care. Other features of this clinically oriented book are the inclusion of many illustrative case presentations and contributions by international authors from leading centers.
Pediatric Neurology by Peter N. Lawson (Editor); Eliot A. McCarthy (Editor)This book present current research from across the globe in the study of paediatric neurology. Topics discussed include the application of MLS BAER in paediatric, mainly neonatal, neurology to detect or diagnose brainstem and auditory abnormalities; childhood epilepsy and cognition; early predictors for autism spectrum disorders; acute severe hypoxia and chronic sublethal hypoxia on the neonatal brainstem and clinical neurophysiology in preterm infants.

Escourolle and Poirier's Manual of Basic Neuropathology by Charles Duyckaerts (Editor); Umberto De Girolami (Editor); Françoise Gray (Editor)Now in its 5th edition, Escourolle and Poirier Manual of Basic Neuropathology continues the tradition of being one of the most respected texts in neuropathology by providing an introduction to the various diseases of the nervous system and their underlying pathology. This thorough, yet concisemanual covers the full spectrum of the various categories of neurologic disease, including neoplasia, trauma, vascular disease, and infection, with separate chapters on prion diseases, multiple sclerosis, degenerative disorders, acquired metabolic diseases, hereditary metabolic diseases, congenitalmalformations, perinatal diseases, skeletal muscle, peripheral nerve, and the pituitary gland.To accurately guide the clinician, the most current techniques in neuropathology are covered in their own chapter at the end of the book. Richly illustrated throughout, with over 700 images of various neuropathogical diagnoses such as tumor, stroke, infection, degeneration, and malformation amongothers, this new edition of the classic monograph is an easy-to-use manual for any student, researcher, or practitioner seeking basic information on neuropathology.Used for decades in all fields related to the nervous system - including neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, neuroradiology, neuroendocrinology, neuropathology, pathology, and neuroscience - Escourolle and Poirier Manual of Basic Neuropathology is regarded at the "bible" of neuropathology. This newversion has been completely rewritten and expanded to include important updates in genetics and molecular biology, reflective of the important neuropathological discoveries in those fields over the past decade.This book is a practical diagnostic tool and necessary reading for anyone encounteringpathological conditions of the nervous system.

Neuroradiology by Val M. Runge; Wendy Smoker; Antonios ValavanisA practical text on the essentials of neuroradiology Neuroradiology is a core clinical resource that clearly illustrates and describes MR and CT images of the brain, head and neck, and spine. The text distills the essential aspects of neuroradiology and contains in-depth discussions of imaging findings. Written from a clinical radiology perspective, the content of this book draws on the personal experience of the authors, all of whom are leading experts in neuroradiology. Key Features: More than 1000 high-quality MR and CT images representing the full range of diseases encountered in everyday practice Online access to a wealth of image sets on Thieme's Media Center Covers common and critical MR and CT diagnosed pathologies in neuroradiology Contains clear, concise explanations of MR physics and imaging findings in clinical neuroradiology This excellent clinical reference helps busy radiologists and neuroradiologists, as well as residents and fellows in these specialties, tackle challenging cases they face on a day-to-day basis and enables them to properly diagnose the common, important pathologies encountered in their patients.
