Overview

Written by field experts, Neuroimmunology in Clinical Practice fills a void in traditional neuroimmunology literature, which tends to cover the discipline’s scientific aspects with little emphasis on clinical applications. This unique book is essential reading in clinical neuroimmunology.
  • Written by field experts this book provides a comprehensive description of immune mediated neurological disorders complemented with the most pertinent and up to date scientific data
  • Covers inflammatory demyelination in the central nervous system, autoimmune diseases of the peripheral nervous system and the muscle, and disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems
  • Fills a gap in existing neuroimmunology literature by focusing on clinical applications
