Peripheral neuropathies are diseases which affect the neuromuscular apparatus between the muscles or sensory receptors and connections in the spinal cord and the brain. They affect approximately 20–30% of children attending neuromuscular clinics.

Uniquely, this text deals exclusively with such disorders in children and draws together the rapidly expanding but widely scattered knowledge in the field. It is a highly practical text, written by clinical neurologists with long experience in physiology, histopathology and management of neuropathy.

This second edition retains the basic structure of its successful predecessor and continues to be liberally illustrated with real case histories. However, extensive revisions and expansion of the text have enabled it to encompass the major developments, including recent advances in molecular biology and therapy of metabolic and inflammatory neuropathies.
