This is the first book dedicated to peripheral neuropathies of immune or infectious origin, which are now known to comprise a substantial proportion of disorders of the peripheral nerves. Many of the most important advances in the field were made by contributors to this volume. There are four sections, dealing with biology and epidemiology, patient evaluation, specific clinical syndromes known to be of infectious or immunologic origin, and therapy and management, including rehabilitation. Neurologists will welcome this comprehensive review of the field, which provides an authoritative overview of the pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of infectious and immune mediated neuropathies.
