Neurologic disorders are commonly encountered by all physicians and constitute an important chunk of internal medicine practice. In this monograph, various autoimmune disorders of the nervous system have been discussed. After a brief introduction to the subject in the first chapter, various neural antibodies have been elaborated which help in understanding the disease in the second and then move on to their laboratory diagnosis in the third. In the subsequent five chapters, autoimmune disorders affecting the upper storey have been discussed including the dementias, demyelinating diseases, epilepsies, movement disorders and the cerebellar ataxias. A brief outline about the autoimmune myelopathies in the ninth chapter is followed by a sojourn into the lower storey and how the disorder affects the peripheral nerves, neuromuscular junction, and the muscle in the subsequent three chapters. Finally, different treatment options and the current guidelines are looked upon. The chapters are excellently written with suitable information crisply condensed in Tables, Flowcharts, and Images. The salient points are suitably summarized at the end of the chapter and help the resident in rapid revision and a busy practitioner with maximum information at a minimum glance.
