Editorial Reviews

A practical text on managing muscle disease, written by clinicians for clinicians. In addition to specific diseases, it addresses common problems, such as fatigue and myalgias, outlining the authors' approach to the patient. Both the clinical evaluation of the patient and the practical use of important diagnostic studies are emphasized. Pertinent information on normal morphology and physiology is briefly presented to aid in the discussion of pathogenesis. In diseases for which the cellular and molecular pathobiology have been partially explained, the current thinking is indicated. Individual disease discussions present the current approach to therapy. Thoroughly illustrated, mostly in color. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
