Now in its sixth edition, Escourolle & Poirier Manual of Basic Neuropathology continues the tradition of being one of the most respected texts in neuropathology by providing an introduction to the diseases of the nervous system and their underlying pathology. This thorough, yet concise manual covers the full spectrum of 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 last chapter covers traditional and current techniques in Neuropathology. Richly illustrated throughout, with over 700 macroscopic and microscopic images of lesions of the nervous system, including tumors, stroke, infection, degeneration, and malformations among, this new edition of the classic monograph is an easy-to-use manual for any student, trainee, researcher, or practitioner seeking basic information on neuropathology.
Used for decades in all fields related to brain and neuromuscular disease-including neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, neuroradiology, neuroendocrinology, neuropathology, pathology, and neuroscience - Escourolle & Poirier Manual of Basic Neuropathology continues to be one of the most respected short introductions to this topic. This new version has been completely rewritten and expanded to include important updates in genetics and molecular biology, reflective of the important and most recent discoveries guiding understanding of pathogenesis and treatment of these diseases in both children and adults.
New to this Edition:
"This has long been regarded as an essential book for introductory neuropathology, and this sixth edition continues that tradition. Several aspects of this book make it stand out...
It is an essential book for trainees, neuropathologists, and any general pathologists or clinicians with an interest in neuropathology.
-- Kyle Conway, MD (University of Michigan Medical School) Doody's Review
" Overall, with its comprehensive but authoritative description of most of the neuropathological conditions that physicians in training might encounter in routine practice, this book is an invaluable tool with numerous high quality pictures and clear, concise discussions. It is also inexpensive and compact compared to other neuropathology books and can be a useful tool in board preparation. This update was essential given the recent changes in the fields of neurology, pathology, and neurosurgery over the past decade."
-- Deepthi Rao, MBBS (MD) (University of Kansas Medical Center) Doody's Review
