Peripheral Neuropathies compiles lectures presented at the Symposium on Peripheral Neuropathies held in Milan, Italy on June 26-28, 1978. This book covers the basic problems in peripheral nerve pathology; axonal transport; neuropathies in chronic renal failure; peripheral neuropathies in diabetes; compression neuropathies; and metabolic, genetic, and inflammatory neuropathies. This text also discusses topics such as filamentous inclusions in Schwann cell nuclei; autonomie dysfunction and myokymia in gold neuropathy; study of the effect of gangliosides on experimental carbon disulfide neuropathy; and peripheral nerve changes in Refsum's disease before and after treatment. This compilation is a useful source of information for students and researchers conducting investigative work on peripheral neuropathy.
