Edition 1 Examination, Diagnosis and Treatment
By A. Staal, Jan van Gijn, MD FRCPE and F. Spaans

Publication Date: 13 Oct 1998
A mononeuropathy has to be recognised through physical examination before it can be explained and treated. This practical book provides valuable guidance on examination of peripheral nerves, and then looks at possible causes, prognosis and treatment.
Mononeuropathies of the arm, leg and trunk are covered, and causes of mononeuropathies other than focal lesions are included.
The easy to follow text is well illustrated with over 90 line diagrams.
