Book description

The first edition of Stroke Syndromes was widely welcomed as a new and authoritative reference in the assessment and diagnosis of stroke. This revised and updated edition remains the definitive guide to patterns and syndromes in stroke. A comprehensive survey of all types of neurological, neurophysiological and other clinical dysfunction due to stroke, the book is organised to make pattern recognition easier. It contains descriptions of clinical problems encountered in stroke patients and their differential diagnosis, and will enable clinicians to differentiate between possible locations on the basis of symptoms and signs. A companion volume Uncommon Causes of Stroke completes this highly authoritative reference work which clinicians in neurology will find essential to the understanding and diagnosis of stroke.

'This is a wonderfully detailed account of stroke syndromes that covers a broad range of clinical presentations of patients with vascular disease. … Stroke Syndromes is an extremely well-written, well-organised, easy-to-read source of clinical information, including detailed descriptions of common stroke presentations as well as some less-commonly seen syndromes. The review of neuroanatomic structures at the beginning of many chapters provides an excellent review for trainees and nontrainees alike. …The richness and conciseness of the clinical descriptions makes it a pleasure to read. …Although the editors suggest that this text is for the nonexpert in stroke, it is recommended not only as a superb teaching reference for trainees but also as an excellent reference for anyone who cares for stroke patients.'
