This book has been described as the 'bible' of muscle disease, from both a scientific and a clinical point of view. It is a comprehensive work that describes and illustrates in detail all pathological reactions of skeletal muscles that occur in human disease. The microscopic changes are illustrated by routine pathological techniques, histochemistry, immunocytochemistry, resin histology and electron microscopy. The pathological findings are correlated with the clinical picture whenever possible, and the interpretation of findings is scientifically based. To facilitate this process, the fundamentals of normal histology and biology of the muscle cell are also covered. This book has been thoroughly revised and expanded to provide up to date coverage of the relevant molecular biology and molecular genetics. It has extensive references, and is richly illustrated. The authors have been at the forefront of muscle pathology and neuromuscular research for 35 more

Review quote

The second edition, like the first, is a well-written, comprehensively illustrated, competitively priced book, distilling many years of wisdom from two very experienced diagnosticians. It should and will, I am sure, be widely used by neurologists and pathologists wiht an interest in myopathology. In the preface, the authors note that they "are not able to provide a quick fix to install an in-depth knowledge of myopathology". This book is, however, a fine place to start.
