Peripheral Nerve and Muscle Disease
Oxford University Press, Oct 10, 2016 - Nerves, Peripheral - 232 pages
Part of the "What Do I Do Now?" series, Peripheral Nerve and Muscle Disease uses a case-based approach to cover common and important topics in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. Each chapter provides an overview of the approach to the problem in question followed by a discussion of the diagnosis, key points to remember, and selected references for further reading. In this edition, new cases include: Lambert-Eaton Syndrome, Botulism, Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy, and Small Fiber Neuropathy Associated with Fibromyalgia. Peripheral Nerve and Muscle Disease is an engaging collection of thought-provoking cases which clinicians can utilize when they encounter difficult patients on the ward or in the clinic. The volume is also a self-assessment tool that tests the reader's ability to answer the question, "What do I do now?"
