It's the comprehensive, up-to-date coverage you need to evaluate muscle disorders with confidence

"Overall, this is a well written and comprehensive textbook of muscle pathology that will be of invaluable assistance to laboratories reporting muscle pathology"  Reviewed by The Bulletin of The Royal College of Pathologists, Jan 2015

  • Bridge the gap between clinical syndromes/disorders and their underlying pathologies with the guidance of muscle disease expert, Dr. Victor Dubowitz, who skillfully guides you through the complexities of pathologic diagnoses and their implications for clinical treatment.
  • Understand and apply expert techniques for obtaining a muscle biopsy, and familiarize yourself with the histochemical, histological, electron microscopical, and molecular appearance of normal muscle and the pathology of individual muscle disease.
  • Read the entire contents and download all of the images online at Expert Consult.
  • Apply all of the latest diagnostic techniques for neurodegenerative and genetic diseases with a brand-new chapter on myopathies associated with systemic disorders and aging, and use advanced techniques such as immunohistochemistry and immunoblotting to produce the most accurate diagnoses possible for a full range of muscle disorders.
  • Stay current in practice with state-of-the-art coverage of genetic markers for individual conditions and antibodies used in immunocytochemical diagnosis.
  • Understand the genetics of muscular dystrophies with absolute clarity through the use of brilliantly simple diagrams and tables, and compare your specimens to a wealth of superb color images capturing the full spectrum of muscle biopsy findings.
  • Take advantage of international insights and fresh perspectives in muscle diseases and disorders from new author Dr. Anders Oldfors, from the Department of Pathology, University of Goteborg, Sweden.

Review:

""The third edition of this book...has surpassed my expectations. The quality of the book overall is excellent, from the production and layout to the illustrations, diagrams and index. The range of muscle diseases included spans both adults and children, with an integrated approach to diagnosis including clinical, genetic, biochemical and pathological features. Overall, this book has been a highlight of the past year for me. It deserves to do very well indeed and will be of immense value beyond its target readership."" BMA Awards 2007

-BMA Awards, 2007, Review of the 3rd Edition

"The book is aimed at diagnostic pathologists and the authors have made a sensible and valid attempt to harmonise classical nomenclature with the new advances in genetics that threaten to overturn previous attempts at classifying muscle disease. Overall, this is a well written and comprehensive textbook of muscle pathology that will be of invaluable assistance to laboratories reporting muscle pathology."
