Uncommon Causes of Stroke by Edited by Julien Bogousslavsky
Published as a companion to the second edition of Stroke Syndromes, this comprehensive reference provides in-depth descriptions of many rare and relatively uncommon causes of stroke. Together with Stroke Syndromes, it emphasises pattern recognition in the location and diagnosis of stroke. This is the most comprehensive and authoritative text on stroke of uncommon cause. It describes various forms of angiitis, coagulation disorders, infective, paraneoplastic and metabolic disorders that may be associated with stroke, and a number of individually rare syndromes such as Eales disease, Fabry disease, and pseudoxanthoma elasticum. For all neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists and vascular surgeons, it is a unique scientific and clinical resource. It will provide a useful reference to help physicians diagnose and treat stroke patients who do not fit well into the usual clinical categories.

' ... 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 a useful reference for specialists evaluating patients with stroke of unknown cause and should be available as a library reference for other professionals who may have some of these patients in their practices.' Neurology 'This book, the essential companion volume to Stroke Syndromes, [complements it perfectly] is specifically concerned with describing uncommon causes of strokes. It contains a wealth of important information for all who work in the field; a rare collection to find together in one volume. ... This mine of information will be invaluable for neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-radiologists and vascular surgeons ...' Extrait de la Revue des Questions scientifiques "...valuable. (It) will appeal to the neurologist, and in particular the neurologist with an interest in vascular disease." Dr T Enevoldson, ACNR
