Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vijaya Patil, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book, from the Blue Books of Practical Neurology series, is a concise review of current concepts in the molecular pathogenesis investigations, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of muscle and the neuromuscular junction.
Purpose: The editors intend this to be a comprehensive resource for practicing physicians who encounter patients with muscle and neuromuscular disease. Rapid advances have taken place in recent years in the field of nerve and muscle diseases. The elucidation of the molecular basis for the pathogenesis of various muscle disorders, development of genetic therapy tools, and other advances make it imperative for a book of this kind to help physicians make an accurate diagnosis and provide better genetic counseling. These indeed are the editors' objectives and this book definitely meets their objectives.
Audience: This book, according to the authors, is intended for general practitioners, family physicians, general internists, orthopedists, neurologists, and anyone else involved in the management of people with muscle diseases. The editors, with their considerable experience in the field of neuromuscular diseases, are certainly credible authorities in the subject matter of the book.
Features: The editors provide information about the various diseases affecting muscles. They provide concise information on the epidemiology, molecular mechanism, and modes of genetic inheritance of muscle diseases, their clinical features, diagnosis, and where applicable, the treatment options for the various disease processes affecting the muscles. The illustrations are clear, well labeled, and of good quality.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for practicing physicians and physicians in training involved in dealing with muscle disorders. Information about the pathogenesis of muscle disease, clinical features, and specific treatment should be of immense help to physicians involved with care of patients with muscle disease. The need for further research in many areas where knowledge currently is incomplete should spur some readers into research. The language is concise and clear, the photographs excellent, and the tables lucid. This book is definitely one which should be an addition to every physician's personal library.
