Apply the expertise of today’s leading authorities — all from the forefront of research and clinical practice! This volume in the Blue Books of Neurology series provides rapid access to essential information on the clinical features, differential diagnosis, genetic testing, and management of a broad group of spinocerebellar degenerative disorders, including ataxias and spastic paraplegias. It delivers the guidance you need to accurately diagnose and manage your patients’ conditions using today’s most effective methods! Key Features Presents a current understanding of the normal and pathological functioning of the genes responsible for ataxias and spastic paraplegias. Offers current, incisive guidance on the differential diagnosis of disorders within this group - as well as from other types of neurologic disease. Discusses today's best management approaches for both hereditary and acquired spinocerebellar degenerations.
