Summary The neurology of sex and bladder disorders requires specialized knowledge and represents a challenge for clinical neurologists focused on the neurological condition. Sex and bladder disorders are often related to more general neurological disorders like Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis, and often the sex and bladder disorders are passed to specialists in urology. Neurology of Sexual and Bladder Disorders: Handbook of Clinical Neurology is a focused, yet comprehensive overview that provides complete tutorial reference to the science, diagnosis and treatment of sex and bladder disorde
