This new, multiauthored, comprehensive textbook deals with neuromuscular
diseases in the pediatric age range. The senior editors, each bringing his
own area of clinical expertise to the project, have assembled a group of 93
I am not aware of any earlier texts that fill this exact niche. The
book's intended audience consists of child neurologists, adult neurologists
with an interest in or need for expanded information on neuromuscular diseases
in childhood (particularly those whose practices include electromyography
[EMG]), and residents and fellows. It would also serve as a valuable resource
for those working on the basic science aspects of neuromuscular diseases and
for clinicians in other fields, including orthopedic surgery, rehabilitation
medicine, and rheumatology. With such a target audience, the text is clinically
focused but solidly grounded on recent developments in the understanding of
the molecular and genetic features of these illnesses.
