Introduction

This book covers all aspects of basic, essential, recent advances and controversies in myopathology. The major emphasis is on diagnostic myopathology of muscular dystrophies, inflammatory myopathies, mitochondrial myopathies, metabolic myopathies, congenital myopathies, myopathies of miscellaneous etiology, neurogenic and neuromuscular junction disorders, the goal being to broaden readers’ understanding of individual disease subgroups. The book also contains all the essential details needed to establish a neuromuscular lab, making it especially relevant for laboratory technical staff and research scholars.
