Book Description:
Exposure to toxic metals remains a public health hazard around the globe. Though the prevalence and intensity of exposure may vary from place to place, metal toxicity has been, and will continue to be, a challenge to recognize, treat and control. This book is made for the busy clinician and is focused on neurotoxicity. The authors review five metals that are neurotoxic (arsenic, lead, manganese, mercury, and thallium), and discuss the clinical approach to patients potentially exposed to these toxicants. It is simply written, current and evidence-based. This book makes an excellent companion to the clinician’s shelf.
