About this book


This detailed, practical textbook focuses on immune mediated disorders of the nervous system with particular focus on systemic autoimmune disorders. Divided into three sections, the first discusses the neuroanatomical and pathophysiologic basis of immune mediated disorders of the nervous system. Following this are 24 chapters devoted to individual clinical conditions. To conclude, the final section explains what is known about the mechanisms of immunomodulatory treatments and practical points about monitoring patients on these treatments.

Neurorheumatology: A Comprehensive Guide to Immune Mediated Disorders of the Nervous System bridges the gaps among different branches of medicine and is an indispensable resource for rheumatologists and neurologists looking to develop a firm understanding of these dynamic disorders

“This book is written at a level that rheumatologists, neurologists, or any other interested readers could easily understand and use as a resource. It will appeal most to rheumatologists and neurologists, but it is approachable for general medicine or subspecialist readers interested in specific diseases or the subject more broadly. … I strongly recommend this book to residents, fellows, or attending physicians in neurology and rheumatology.” (Lindsay Higdon, Doody’s Book Reviews, February 21, 2020)
