The application over the past few decades of especially designed research techniques for the study of peripheral nerve disease has resulted in major clarifications in the pathogenesis and pathologic reactions of this group of poorly understood disorders. It is now an appropriate time for the systematization of this new information in textbook form. Particularly needed are communications that may result in improved pathologic diagnosis of peripheral neuropathies. Outside of special centers for neuromuscular disease study, biopsy and autopsy samples of nerve are often poorly handled and inadequately diagnosed. Artifacts of processing are common, and critically needed methods of study are
