The myopathies are among the most fascinating group of disorders both to treat and to study. However, although symptoms relating to the muscles such as myalgia, fatigue and cramps are extremely common, most of the myopathies are very rare indeed. It is therefore difficult for a clinician with an average practice to gain much experience in the recognition of different types of muscle disease, let alone their optimum management.

Myopathies in Clinical Practice brings together the latest knowledge of the subject, and provides the general clinician with a concise yet comprehensive manual for their encounters with myopathies. The content is biased towards clinical assessment and those disorders that are commonest or of particular importance.
