Summary "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."--Jacket
