Peripheral Neuropathy

Nicholas A. Vick, MD
JAMA. 1985;253(13):1940-1941. doi:10.1001/jama.1985.03350370136049.

This is unequivocally the standard text and ultimate source of information about the biology and disease of the peripheral nervous system. When the first edition appeared nearly ten years ago, its scholarly excellence was recognized by all. This edition has been considerably expanded and revised.

The distinguished anatomist and neurobiolgoist Richard Bunge has joined in authorship with Drs Peter James Dyck, P. K. Thomas, and Edward H. Lambert. They have chosen their other contributors well. With them, they cover an enormous field in two well-organized and impressively produced volumes.

I cannot resist particular mention of one chapter, 36, which is a textbook itself and a marvel to read. In it, Dyck and his colleagues deal in a general way with the pathological alterations of the peripheral nervous system. It should be forced reading for any physician who even begins to think about asking a patient to have a nerve biopsy.
