2nd Edition of "Biopsy Diagnosis of Peripheral Neuropathy" to be released August 31, 2014

The second edition of Biopsy Diagnosis of Peripheral Neuropathy by Drs. Juan M. Bilbao and Robert E. Schmidt is set to come out on August 31, 2014. The is from the book's description from amazon.com:
"This book presents a simple, logical method for constructing a differential diagnosis based on pathology and clinical presentation. It also provides advice on the selection of ancillary molecular, immunohistochemical and genetic techniques to establish a definitive diagnosis. Clear, authoritative guidance is offered on diagnosis of the full range of neuropathies with the aid of a wealth of high-quality color photomicrographs and electron micrographs. The pathologist will benefit greatly from the identification of a variety of artifacts and normal structures occasionally encountered in nerve biopsies that need to be distinguished from specific pathologic alterations"


The first edition, also co-authored by Bilbao, was released back in 1995. Given the advent of new diagnoses and techniques of analysis and the impact of molecular genetics, there is without doubt a dire need for this book, which is authored by well-established authorities in the field.

Thanks to the inimitable Dr. Mark Cohen for alerting me to the imminent release of this text.
