Pathology of skeletal muscle
This book has been described as the bible of muscle disease, from both a scientific and a clinical point of view. It is a comprehensive work that explains and illustrates in detail all pathological reactions of skeletal muscles that occur in human disease. The microscopic changes are illustrated by histochemistry, immunocytochemistry, resin histology, and electron microscopy. The pathological findings are correlated with the clinical picture whenever possible. The interpretation of the findings is scientifically based. To facilitate this process, the fundamentals of normal histology and biology of the muscle cell are also covered.The book has been thoroughly revised and expanded for this Second Edition to provide up-to-date coverage of the relevant molecular biology and molecular genetics, as well as extensive references. It has been well organized and richly illustrated by the authors, who have been at the forefront of muscle pathology and neuromuscular research for 35 years. This practical reference work is intended for neuropathologists, neurologists, and general pathologists who look at muscle biopsies. It will also serve as an introduction to muscle disease for neurology and pathology residents.
