Escourolle & Poirier’s Manual of Basic Neuropathology 5th Edition PDF
31.37 MB PDF
The first two French editions of the Manuel Elémentaire de Neuropathologie , published in 1971 and 1977, were conceived, writt en, and edited by Raymond Escourolle and Jacques Poirier. Aft er the death of R. Escourolle in 1984, Françoise Gray joined Jacques Poirier for the third edition; in addition, Jean-Jacques Hauw and Romain Gherardi contributed to selected chapters. Th e first three editions reached the English-speaking public thanks to the friendship and translating ability of the now-deceased Lucien Rubinstein. For the fourth edition, Umberto De Girolami joined as co-editor and the scope of the monograph was expanded with the collaborative efforts of multiple experts throughout the world to write the English-language text. Jacques Poirier is now retired, and we are delighted that Charles Duyckaerts has agreed to join the editorial team for the fifth edition. Th ere have also been some changes in the authorship of several chapters in response to the changing status of senior authors and the need to recruit active investigators to replace them.
Th is fifth edition of the Manual attempts to deliberately maintain the general intention of the first and subsequent editions of Professors Escourolle and Poirier’s monograph—that is, to provide a basic description of the lesions underlying the diseases of the nervous system and to limit pathophysiological considerations to essential principles. Historical, clinical, neurological, and radiologic imaging data, once again, are specifically excluded, as well as reference listings, while recognizing this to be essential information for the erudite and informed practice of neuropathology. Our premise, however, has been that it would be presumptuous for us to do justice to this vast body of information, well beyond the scope of a basic overview of neuropathology. We also have made the assumption that the reader has some familiarity with general concepts of neuroanatomy, neurohistology, and the principles of anatomical pathology as well as clinical neurology.
With these guidelines in mind, our aim has been to produce a text that mainly presents those aspects of neuropathology that are morphologic, and to demonstrate these with accurate descriptions and good illustrations, all within the scope of a concise and inexpensive “manual.”
For several reasons, we think that the time is now right for a new edition since the last one in 2003. Over the past decade, specialty training in neurology, neurosurgery, and pathology has changed throughout much of the world, such that in these disciplines less time is being devoted to neuropathology. Th is has been due in large part to the tremendous expansion of knowledge in allied subspecialty areas, requiring that more time be devoted to them. As a result, the trainee is now very much in need of a concise introductory text.
