The Handbook of Clinical Neurology is an extremely ambitious project: create an up-to-date encyclopedic text which covers this rapidly evolving field of medicine. The present volume is the second dedicated to coverage of diseases of the peripheral nerves. Contributors are highly selected experts from the United States, continental Europe, and Great Britain.
Chapters vary in content and readability but generally, are skillfully done and uniformly complete. Pertinent and often extensive bibliographies follow each section. The 25 chapters in this volume include "Metabolic Neuropathies" (R. A. Henson and H. Urich); "Dysproteinaemic Neuropathies" (Jan Waldenstrom); "Neuralgic Amyotrophy" (J. C. Gathier and G. W. Bruyn); "The Serogenetic Peripheral Neuropathies" (J. C. Gathier and G. W. Bruyn); "Neuropathies in Collagen Diseases" (Gilbert H. Glaser); "Peripheral Neuropathy Associated with Malignant Disease" (R. A. Henson and H. Urich); "Ischaemic Neuropathy and Peripheral Vascular Disease" (E. C. Hutchinson); "Migrant Sensory Neuritis" (G. W. Bruyn); "Hereditary Sensory Neuropathy"
