About the Authors
  • This compendium is unique because it provides authoritative discussions on the less common causes of stroke. Discussed within are 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. New chapters include stroke in patients with Lyme disease, scleroderma, Cogan’s syndrome, Chagas' disease, and HIV. It is therefore a unique scientific and clinical resource that provides a essential reference to help physicians diagnose and treat stroke patients who do not fit well into the usual clinical categories.

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

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The 71 chapters of this impressive collection do a commendable job of discussing pathology and physiopathology, clinical features and neuroradiological findings, diagnostic procedures, and therapy of less common conditions related to stroke. Although many of the conditions discussed are rare, the book covers the causes of up to 10% to 15% of all strokes and of up to 40% of strokes in young adults. This aspect is the long red line of this book, in which less frequent and rare causes of stroke are exhaustively presented and described by an international team of specialists in the field. Needless to say, Caplan is an acknowledged world authority on stroke medicine and has published widely in many aspects of stroke, with a recognizable and well-known didactic activity."
    --Journal of the American Medical Association
