Editorial Reviews

"Another excellent text in the Contemporary Neurology series. The contributors and editors are to be congratulated on producing a comprehensive and up-to-date textbook which is eminently readable. The text is interspersed with informative tables, good quality clinical and histologicalphotographs and exceptionally clear line drawings and illustrations...a definite must for the neurology departmental library...the most up-to-date text on peripheral neuropathies. It will be well used."--"Brain, December 2002
