Most strokes are attributed to atherosclerosis of neck and intracranial arteries, brain embolism from the heart, and penetrating artery disease; these are discussed in detail in many other books. This compendium fills an important niche by providing authoritative discussions on the other, less common causes of stroke, including various forms of angiitis, coagulation disorders, infective, paraneoplastic and metabolic disorders that may be associated with stroke, and a number of rare syndromes such as Eales disease and Fabry's disease. This new edition contains detailed, up-to-date information about the nature, diagnosis, and treatment of those relatively uncommon types of cerebrovascular disease that cause strokes. It is therefore a unique scientific and clinical resource that provides a useful reference to help physicians diagnose and treat stroke patients who do not fit well into the usual clinical categories. New chapters include stroke in patients with Lyme disease, scleroderma, Cogan's syndrome, Chagas' disease, and HIV.

• Fully updated and modernized new edition • Emphasizes effective diagnosis and management • Comprehensive - most complete reference on rare forms of cerebrovascular disease

Review from the first edition: ' … stands alone as a readable text … There is no doubt in my mind that this is a book worth having. I would recommend buying a personal copy and predict that it will become a standard text to be found in all departmental libraries.' Neuroradiology

'This is an excellent resource and a keepsake in the hospital or professional library of any neurologist, neuroradiologist, neurosurgeon, vascular surgeon, angiologist, as well as stroke physician, pediatrician, and internist.' Nano Khilnani, Biz India
