Disorders of the peripheral nervous system (PNS) are the cause of prominent neurological symptoms including weakness, sensory loss, pain and autonomic dysfunction associated with deficits, morbidity and mortality. These disorders may be primary hereditary or cryptogenic neurologic disorders confined to the PNS or part of the pathology of both the central nervous system and the PNS. Most PNS disorders are secondary to other system disorders and may be responsive to treatment of the primary disease. Important advances have been obtained in several areas including molecular genetics, biochemistry, immunology, morphology and physiology that have enhanced our understanding of the causes and consequences of damage to peripheral nerve. Understanding of both these groups of PNS diseases has greatly expanded over recent years and has led to important advances of treatment both to protect and to repair damages of peripheral nerve. This volume provides an overview of the state-of-the-art of examination, diagnosis and treatment of these very diverse disorders and will be of interest to both the research and clinical neuroscience and neurology communities. Covers both hereditary and cryptogenic neurologic disorders Includes advances in the basic science of PNS from molecular genetics, biochemistry, immunology, morphology and physiology Detailed coverage of neuropathy in connective tissue disorders, infectious disorders, metabolic disorders and malignancy

Peripheral nerve entrapments are frequent. They usually appear in anatomical tunnels such as the carpal tunnel. Nerve compressions may be due to external pressure such as the fibular nerve at the fibular head. Malignant or benign tumors may also damage the nerve. For each nerve from the upper and lower limbs, detailed clinical, electrophysiological, imaging, and therapeutic aspects are described. In the upper limbs, carpal tunnel syndrome and ulnar neuropathy at the elbow are the most frequent manifestations; the radial nerve is less frequently involved. Other nerves may occasionally be damaged and these are described also. In the lower limbs, the fibular nerve is most frequently involved, usually at the fibular head by external compression. Other nerves may also be involved and are therefore described. The clinical and electrophysiological examination are very important for the diagnosis, but imaging is also of great use. Treatments available for each nerve disease are discussed.

Autoimmune Neurology presents the latest information on autoimmune neurologic disease, the immune response to the body where organs run wild, causing the immune system to attack itself. Autoimmunity is a main element in numerous nervous system diseases and can target any structure within the central or peripheral nervous system. Over the past 20 years, significant advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology of autoimmune disorders, including the use of biomarkers has led to new diagnosis and treatment options. Neurologic conditions associated with autoimmune reactions include dementia, neuromuscular disease, epilepsy, sleep disorders, diabetes, and other common neurologic disorders and disease. This current tutorial-reference will be a must-have title for clinical neurologists, research neurologists, neuroscientists, and any medical professional working with autoimmune disease and disorders. Includes comprehensive coverage of autoimmune neurology Details the latest techniques for the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and disorders, including dementia, neuromuscular disease, epilepsy, and sleep disorders Presents a focused reference for clinical practitioners and the clinical neurology and neurology research communities

TTR FAP is characterized by phenotypic and genotypic heterogeneity. The severity of polyneuropathy along with autonomic dysfunction and heart involvement makes it a life-threatening disease. This protein is mainly produced by the liver. Molecular genetic testing is essential in the diagnostic strategy. TTR-Val30Met is the most frequent substitution, resulting in a guanine to cytosine mutation in exon 2 of the gene. It is virtually the only variant detected in Portugal, Brazil, and Sweden. By contrast, as many as 30 different TTR variants are reported in Japan and in other European countries. A less severe phenotype with late onset has been reported. Diagnosis should be performed as early as possible since upcoming pharmacological therapeutic approaches are now available, in addition to liver transplantation.

Peripheral nerve lesions are common and can present in a variety of ways. Peripheral nerve injury can result from a broad spectrum of causes. For the majority of patients, rehabilitation is generally indicated regardless of etiology. Evaluation and treatment by a multidisciplinary team including neurologists, psychiatrists, surgeons, occupational and physical therapists, and therapists with specialized training in orthotics maximizes the potential for recovery. This chapter will focus on those upper and lower extremity neuropathies that are most commonly seen in clinical practice. In addition, we discuss various rehabilitative strategies designed to improve function and quality of life.

The peripheral nervous system can be affected by malignancies involving different mechanisms. Neoplastic nerve lesion by compression, invasion, and infiltration is rare and occurs in particular in leukemia (neuroleukemiosis) and lymphoma (neurolymphomatosis). Its occurrence is much rarer in cancer, and even less so in sarcoma. The neoplastic infiltration of peripheral nerves by solid tumors is characterized by specific topographical sites such as the base of the skull, the ear, nose and throat region, and the cervico-brachial plexus as well as the lumbar and sacral plexus. Rarely malignant invasion affects the cranial nerves of the face where it can spread centripetally. Autonomic nerves and ganglia can also be affected. The retrograde spread of cancer in nerves is a bad prognostic sign. The clinical diagnosis is determined by tumor type, the pattern of involvement, and often pain.

More than half of all patients with diabetes develop neuropathic disorders affecting the distal sensory and/or motor nerves, or autonomic or cranial nerve functions. Glycemic control can decrease the incidence of neuropathy but is not adequate alone to prevent or treat the disease. This chapter introduces diabetic neuropathy with a morphological description of the disease then describes our current understanding of metabolic and molecular mechanisms that contribute to neurovascular dysfunctions. Key mechanisms include glucose and lipid imbalances and insulin resistance that are interconnected via oxidative stress, inflammation, and altered gene expression. These complex interactions should be considered for the development of new treatment strategies against the onset or progression of neuropathy. Advances in understanding the combined metabolic stressors and the novel study of epigenetics suggest new therapeutic targets to combat this morbid and intractable disease affecting millions of patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
