  • A practical and balanced guide to the diagnosis and treatment of neuroimmunological disease.
  • Employs a standard approach for easy reading: definition, etiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis - including both standard and molecular pathology - clinical manifestations, natural history, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis
  • Introduction to neuroscientific aspects of neuroimmunology for the immunologist and to immunological aspects of neuroimmunology for the neurologists/neuroscientist
  • Broad use of figures and tables
  • Focus on the prototypic neuroimmunological diseases, which serve as the foundation from which other neuroimmunological diseases are explored
  • Provides single author perspective, allowing for the avoidance of repetition among chapters
  • Concentration on the overlap between neuroimmunological and neuroinfectious diseases
A Primer of Neuroimmunological Disease is a significant new resource for anyone interested in conditions such as multiple sclerosis(MS), myasthenia gravis, and neurological infections. It is a practical and balanced guide to the diagnosis and treatment of neuroimmunological disease.

A Primer of Neuroimmunological Disease distinguishes itself by providing a range of features not generally included in texts on neuroimmunology. These include broad presentation of information in the form of figures and tables; strong cohesion among topics by focusing on a few prototypic neuroimmunological diseases, which serve as a foundation from which to explore other neuroimmunological diseases; a single author perspective, with references across chapters; and a focus on the overlap between neuroimmunological and neuroinfectious diseases. Neurologists, immunologists, infectious disease specialists, neuroscientists and others interested in neuroimmunological diseases such as MS will find A Primer of Neuroimmunological to be a state-of-the-art resource.
