From the Back Cover:

The neurology of sex and bladder disorders requires specialized knowledge and represents a challenge for clinical neurologists.  Sexuality is a major component of patient quality of life, and dysfunctions of lower urinary tract (LUT) are vital, as they may lead to chronic infection, dilatation of the upper urinary tract, renal insufficiency, and death. Despite the high prevalence of sexual and LUT disorders, most physicians are ill prepared to discuss them with their patients, let alone to diagnose and treat them.  Further, these disorders are often related to more general neurological disorders like Parkinson Disease and MS, yet often the sex and bladder disorders are passed to specialists in urology. This volume is an attempt to reverse these trends and and illustrate to neurologists that sexual and LUT function need to be addressed by them for reasons of correct diagnosis and possible therapeutic consequences.  This focused yet comprehensive overview provides complete tutorial reference to the science, diagnosis and treatment of sex and bladder disorders from a neurologic perspective.
