Autoantibody testing in peripheral neuropathy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Immune-mediated neuromuscular disorders and peripheral neuropathies are common in clinical neuromuscular practice. They are important to diagnose accurately since most are treatable which results in improvements in patients' function and quality of life. This chapter provides a general classification of neuromuscular disorder-associated autoantibodies and discusses methods of detection and clinical and therapeutic correlations of specific autoantibodies found in motor, sensory, or autonomic polyneuropathies.
