After a general description of the basic macroscopic and microscopic changes specific to the nervous system, the different pathological processes which affect the nervous system, i.e. tumours, trauma, strokes, infections, prion diseases, degenerative processes, acquired and hereditary metabolic disorders and developmental malformations, are described. Specific chapters are devoted to epilepsy and the pathology of peripheral nerves, skeletal muscle and pituitary.
