Multiple Sclerosis and CNS Neuroimmunologic Disorders is a practical guide to effective care of patients with multiple sclerosis and other neuroimmunologic disorders. It provides the scientific basis of multiple sclerosis, and its etiology, epidemiology and pathogenesis. It covers the diagnostic process, the course of the disease and prognosis, and the use of MRI in diagnosis and disease monitoring. Disease-modifying therapies, relapsing treatment algorithms, breakthrough RRMS, switching therapy, and progressive treatment algorithms are all discussed in detail. It also addresses multiple sclerosis in childhood and pregnancy, and includes assessment of 'alternative therapies'. This new addition to the Neurology in Practice series contains practical guidance and learning features: * Algorithms and guidelines * 'Tips and Tricks' boxes on improving outcomes * 'Caution' warning boxes to avoiding problems * 'Science Revisited' - quick reminders of the basic science principles necessary for understanding Multiple Sclerosis and CNS Neuroimmunologic Disorders is an ideal reference for neurologists in practice and training.
