The third section examines acute and chronic immune-mediated neuropathies, multifocal motor neuropathies, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, paraneoplastic diseases, and diabetic polyneuropathy, offering clear guidance on available treatments and descriptions of the latest advances in immunotheraphy, drug therapy, and physiotherapy.
