Abstract

Now in its 5th edition, this resource is one of the most respected texts in neuropathology and provides an introduction to the various diseases of the nervous system and their underlying pathology. It covers the full spectrum of the various categories of neurologic disease, including neoplasia, trauma, vascular disease, and infection, with separate chapters on prion diseases, multiple sclerosis, degenerative disorders, acquired metabolic diseases, hereditary metabolic diseases, congenital malformations, perinatal diseases, skeletal muscle, peripheral nerve, and the pituitary gland. The most current techniques in neuropathology are covered in their own chapter at the end of the book. Richly illustrated throughout, it features over 700 images of various neuropathogical diagnoses such as tumor, stroke, infection, degeneration, and malformation, among others.
