The February issue of Continuum: Lifelong Learning in Neurology® focuses on peripheral neuropathy and offers the opportunity to earn up to 12 hours of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
“Peripheral neuropathy is common in the general population and is one of the most common reasons for referral to neurologists,” said guest editor David Simpson, MD, FAAN, FRCP, professor of neurology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. “There have been substantial advances in the understanding of the pathophysiology of peripheral neuropathy, diagnostic testing, and genetic underpinnings of some neuropathies.
