A practical but authoritative reference for clinicians in any medical specialty who are evaluating and treating patients with signs and symptoms of a peripheral neuropathy.

Reviewing the full spectrum of clinically significant neuropathies, the book contains chapters on common and rare forms including mononeuropathy in the upper and lower extremities, mononeuritis multiplex, diffuse and symmetric polyneuropathies, brachial and lumbrosacral plexopathies, and spinal root disorders-disorders that can mimic diffuse and/or focal neuropathies, complicating diagnosis and evaluation. Coverage encompasses both inherited and acquired diseases, including neuropathies arising from physical injury, diabetes, alcoholism, toxins, autoimmune responses, nutritional deficiencies, vascular and metabolic disorders, medication-induced neuropathies, and idiopathic conditions. The textbook provides an evidence-based approach to testing, differential diagnosis, and treatment, and should serve as a trusted resource for healthcare professionals confronting the many manifestations of peripheral neuropathy in clinical practice.
