Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology series, the Oxford Textbook of Neuromuscular Disorders covers the scientific basis, clinical diagnosis, and treatment of neuromuscular disorders with a particular focus on the most clinically relevant disorders. The book is organized into seven sections, starting with the general approach to the patient with neuromuscular disorders and then focusing on specific neuromuscular conditions affecting the peripheral nervous system from its origins at the spinal cord anterior horn on its outward course to their effector muscles and the inbound sensory pathways. Chapters on specific neuromuscular conditions are illustrated with typical case histories and their presenting features, allowing readers to put rarer conditions into their clinical context more easily. The concurrent online version allows access to the full content of the textbook, contains links from the references to primary research journal articles, allows full text searches, and provides access to figures and tables that can be downloaded to PowerPointRG. This textbook will serve as a useful reference for neurologists and specialist trainees in neurology, neuroscientists, neurophysiologists, and other healthcare professionals.

The first real cases video atlas of neuromuscular disorders that is supplemented with multiple-choice questions, and updates on the illustrated topics. It is easy to search and read. It is perfect for preparation to the neurology and neuromuscular boards and an excellent way to update the experts. By replacing the descriptive text with vivid illustrative videos, the reader will have more time to face the intellectual challenges of these cases instead of trying to build a mental picture of these cases first. Short and well-edited video clips from real clinic stories supplemented with challenging multiple choice questions, provides an excellent way to bridge the gap between overflow of information and short attention span. The chapters are arranged according the symptoms instead of diseases, yet, diseases are listed in the index if one wants to see all videos relevant to a specific disease. Close to 300 video cases* taken directly from a real neuromuscular clinic, illustrating a myriad of disorders and shedding light on their diagnosis, and treatment and giving updates about many of them provides an invaluable approach that should benefit any one who is interested in neuromuscular disorders which comprises more than 50% of presenting disease to general neurologists and even to general practitioners. Some rare diseases are also described, giving an opportunity for the new trainees to see them so that they can diagnosed them if they see them again which may not happen very often. *Due to size limitations, the videos are not included with any eBook version.

The first edition of the Oxford Textbook of Clinical Nephrology established itself as the leading clinical reference text for practicing nephrologists worldwide. The second edition comes five years later, during which time there have been significant advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of renal disease and in therapy. Placing existing treatment on a firm scientific basis or stopping ineffective or dangerous treatment is as important as introducing proven new therapies, and all the contributors have taken this fully into account. During the development of the second edition all the first edition chapters were critically reviewed by practicing nephrologists and their suggestions have been incorporated to make the text even more practically useful and logically arranged. Expert topic editors for pediatrics, pathology, physiology and pharmacology have checked all relevant sections from their own perspective. This edition is the only major textbook of nephrology to be printed in full colour throughout. Reproduction of the histological and clinical illustrations in their natural colours reveals their true significance, and there are numerous new colour illustrations. There are new chapters on: Imaging tactics - a rationale; Structural basis of glomerular function; Symptomless patient with abnormal urine; Immunotactoid (fibrillary) nephritis; Mechanisms of interstitial disease; and Host factors in the pathogenesis of urinary tract infection. The sections on acute and chronic renal failure have been reorganized with new chapters on the Epidemiology of acute renal failure, Dialysis and haemoperfusion treatment in acute poisoning, and Genesis of the uraemic syndrome. In addition the chapter on Gastrointestinal effects in chronic renal failure includes a new discussion of the various forms of hepatitis. A new section on Acute renal failure in special settings includes new chapters on pregnancy, tropical illness, and the elderly. In the inherited diseases section there is a new chapter on Inherited disorders of purine metabolism, and in the structural diseases section a new chapter on Medullary sponge kidney. The section on malignant disease has new chapters on Tumours of the bladder, and Tumours of the prostate. The result is an outstanding up- to-date, international clinical text which no clinical nephrologist can afford to be without.
