Dysimmune Neuropathies provides readers with detailed, basic information that will enable users to recognize and differentiate each neuropathy to adequately guide an investigation and create a treatment plan. An overview of recent progress, avenues for future research, and the desired benefits are also covered. The book highlights the many developments in the field that have occurred in terms of pathophysiological mechanisms, particularly immunological, that have direct implications on treatment strategies. This book is a great reference for trainees, clinicians and researchers specializing in neurology, neuromuscular diseases and neurophysiology.
Yusuf A. Rajabally trained and qualified in medicine in Montpellier, France. He completed specialist training in Neurology and Neurophysiology (EMG) in Bordeaux, France and obtained an MD based on work on genetic neuropathies in 1997. He set up and run the Neuromuscular and Peripheral Nerve subspecialist service in Leicester, U.K., from 2001.
He was appointed as Consultant Neurologist at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, U.K. in 2013 to the Regional Neuromuscular Service where he now leads the service for peripheral nerve disorders. He was appointed Honorary Professor of Neurology in 2015 by Aston University, Birmingham, UK.
