Metabolic and functional impairments in skeletal muscle frequently occur. These range from the symptoms of pain and fatigue to pathological disorders that may result in muscle wasting. However, many of these symptoms and features of skeletal muscle disease occur in diverse conditions, each with different aetiologies, methods of diagnosis and treatment. The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive text that brings the complex facets of skeletal muscle pathology, diagnosis and management together in a single coherent volume. All the contributing authors are of national or international standing and leading experts in their field with each chapter being a concise and detailed account of the current 'state-of-the-art'. Where relevant, the text is accompanied by diagrams, photomicrographs and tables with appropriate citations. The aim of the book is to enhance our understanding and treatment of skeletal muscle disorders.
