Clinical Electromyography is edited by two international authorities on neuromuscular diseases; each editor authors two chapters and Brown coauthors a third. There are 26 chapters divided into four sections. The first section consists of six chapters addressing the basics, including a brief introduction to electromyography. Tremor, as well as the signs and symptoms on examination of the cranial and peripheral nerves and autonomic nervous system, are addressed. The second, and most extensive, section (chapters 7 through 22) addresses individual diseases of the peripheral nervous system. Specific topics are addressed, including radiculopathies, plexopathies, and mononeuropathies of the upper and lower extremities, each separately. In later chapters, further detailed discussion is then given to pathogenesis, including trauma, ischemia, hereditary defects, diabetes, and inflammatory, toxic, and metabolic causes. Motor neuron disease and atypical motor neuron disease are covered well, but curiously placed amid the other chapters on the specific origins of individual diseases.
