Both chronic systemic inflammatory diseases and neurological diseases occur frequently so an occurrence of both in a single patient may be due to chance alone. However, there are a number of systemic inflammatory diseases which commonly involve the nervous system. Written by a leading cast of experts, with a practical approachincluding ‘things to remember’ for each presentation, Neurological Disorders due to Systemic Disease shouldbe on every neurologist. Many systemic diseases involve neurologic manifestations, and sometimes these neurologic manifestations are the important presenting symptoms of systemic diseases.

Daniela. Pohl, Susanne. Benseler, in Handbook of Clinical Neurology, Conclusions. Systemic disorders with possible involvement of the nervous system include a variety of diseases with presumed inflammatory and autoimmune pathomechanisms, among them Behçet disease, sarcoidosis, SLE, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, scleroderma, and Sjögren syndrome.   The initial chapters consider diagnostic issues, pulmonary function tests and techniques that are currently in development. The book then goes on to cover a variety of pulmonary manifestations of very different disease entities, such as connective tissue diseases, systemic vasculitis and much more.

We aim to assess the neurological manifestations of Chinese adult patients with SAIDs. Systemic disease involves several parts of the body or the complete system. This comprehensive reference focuses on the specific neurologic aspects of systemic disease. Part 3 includes coverage of oncologic disorders, organ transplantation, infectious diseases, tropical neurology, pregnancy, neuroanesthesia and other diseases and disorders.
