Written for physicians and other practitioners, this book provides clear, up-to-date information on all important neuromuscular diseases, with concise yet complete descriptions of the clinical signs and symptoms. Each chapter reviews laboratory findings, creatine kinase activity, electronmyography, enzyme histochemistry, and electromicroscopy or computed tomography of the muscles and offers detailed descriptions of the various patient complaints and clinical findings on examination. Special attention has been paid to testing procedures and the many possibilities for treatment, with useful tables for grading muscle strength and functional activity. Thirty-one tables are included for easy reference and the book contains excellent photographs of the most important signs of neuromuscular disease.
