Textbook of Peripheral Neuropathy is a practical but authoritative reference for clinicians in anymedical specialty who are evaluating and treating patients with signs and symptoms of a peripheralneuropathy. Reviewing the full spectrum of clinically significant neuropathies, the book contains chapterson common and rare forms including mononeuropathy in the upper and lower extremities, mononeuritismultiplex, diffuse and symmetric polyneuropathies, brachial and lumbrosacral plexopathies, and spinalroot disordersódisorders that can mimic diffuse and/or focal neuropathies, complicating diagnosis andevaluation. Coverage encompasses both inherited and acquired diseases, including neuropathies arisingfrom physical injury, diabetes, alcoholism, toxins, autoimmune responses, nutritional deficiencies, vascularand metabolic disorders, medication-induced neuropathies, and idiopathic conditions. The textbookprovides an evidence-based approach to testing, differential diagnosis, and treatment, and should serveas a trusted resource for healthcare professionals confronting the many manifestations of peripheralneuropathy in clinical practice. The chapters are written by internationally renowned expert contributors with deep clinical experienceand contain numerous tables, figures, and algorithms providing clear diagnostic and managementguidelines. Boxed Clinical Pearls and Key Points allow for quick access to pertinent information, making evaluation and review easy and rewarding.

"Peripheral Neuropathies in Clinical Practice is a revamped and updated version of Disorders of Peripheral Nerves, published in 1992. The current edition begins with basic concepts and anatomic classifications of the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) and its disorders." "The anatomic complexities, varied presentations, and innumerable etiologies of peripheral neuropathies present substantial challenges for the practicing clinician. Comprehensive and concise in approach, Peripheral Neuropathies in Clinical Practice is a thorough review of the neurologic literature written by expert clinicians, each of whom are leaders in the field. Its aim is to assist neurologists, trainees in neurology and related fields, and all practitioners who see these patients to better understand, evaluate, and manage peripheral nerve disorders."--BOOK JACKET.

Nearly one in fifteen people—that's 20 million people in the United States—suffers from peripheral neuropathy, or nerve damage. Caused by such conditions as diabetes, cancer, vitamin deficiencies, and kidney disease as well as certain drugs and toxins, neuropathy brings numbness, tingling, and burning in the feet, legs, and fingertips. Neuropathy can be more than uncomfortable—it can be disabling: people whose fingertips are numb may find it hard to button clothing and complete other everyday tasks. Neuropathy is often dangerous, as well: people who cannot feel their feet are more likely to stumble and fall, and they may not notice injuries that need medical attention. Dr. Janice F. Wiesman, a neurologist with twenty years of experience helping people who have neuropathy find relief, shares her special insights into this painful and debilitating condition. With exceptional clarity, Dr. Wiesman begins by outlining the basics of nerve anatomy and function. She explains how peripheral neuropathy is diagnosed and treated, describes neuropathy’s disparate causes, and offers readers lifestyle changes that can help keep nerves healthy. A useful glossary defines terms, patient stories offer real-world experiences, and illustrations provide a visual key to the condition. A detailed resources section points the reader to reliable web sites and organizations that offer more help. Concentrating on the most common types of neuropathy, Dr. Wiesman provides hope, help, and comfort to patients, families, and caregivers.

Peripheral nerve analysis is a challenging task for pathologists, given the advent of new diagnoses and techniques of analysis and the impact of molecular genetics. This book presents a simple, logical method for constructing a differential diagnosis based on pathology and clinical presentation. It also provides advice on the selection of ancillary molecular, immunohistochemical and genetic techniques to establish a definitive diagnosis. Clear, authoritative guidance is offered on diagnosis of the full range of neuropathies with the aid of a wealth of high-quality color photomicrographs and electron micrographs. The pathologist will benefit greatly from the identification of a variety of artifacts and normal structures occasionally encountered in nerve biopsies that need to be distinguished from specific pathologic alterations. This user-friendly, practical text will be an invaluable aid in achieving the most specific diagnosis possible.

Fully revised and updated, the Third Edition of this respected text continues to provide complete and current information on the sites, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of focal lesions of the peripheral nervous system. Detailed coverage of individual nerves emphasizes normal anatomy, pathology, and diagnosis. While this edition retains the easy-access organizational framework of prior editions, many more clinical figures have been added to aid readers in improving diagnostic accuracy. Close attention is given to the latest imaging techniques, electrodiagnostic testing methods, and intraoperative electrophysiologic recordings. Early chapters review the gross anatomy and structure of peripheral nerves, the physiologic sequelae of various types of nerve damage, the abnormalities found in electrodiagnostic tests, and the work-up for patients with focal neuropathies. The remaining chapters address the courses and anatomical relations of various nerves, identify the types and sites of lesions, and discuss the investigation and management of specific focal neuropathies.
