Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David Walk, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: After an introductory section outlining basic principles of neuroimmunology, this book reviews immunologic disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system as well as neurologic manifestations of other immunologic disorders.
Purpose: The editors' stated purpose is "to assist the practicing neurologist in treating patients with neuroimmunologic diseases." These is a worthy objective that is, for the most part, met. The book combines discussions of pathophysiology with a great deal of clinically useful information.
Audience: The stated audience is the practicing neurologist. The contributors have successfully written with this audience in mind, although the book is useful in particular for those neurologists with an interest in pathophysiology.
Features: The illustrations are generally of good quality and adequate number. References are adequate and up-to-date. The overall appearance of the book is good.
Assessment: This is a useful book because it addresses the pathophysiology as well as the clinical aspects and management of several common neurologic disorders. It has a broad audience. It is up-to-date and generally well-written. While some of the chapter contributors are recognized authorities, many are not. Nonetheless, it is a useful book and would be an appropriate acquisition for a large medical library, a medical bookstore with a significant demand for neurology texts, or a practicing neurologist interested in a current review of these conditions.
