Clinical Overview and Pathogenesis of the Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, and Other Pain Syndromes highlights the work of featured speakers from the MYOPAIN ?95 Third World Congress, an international meeting of the minds regarding the two soft tissue pain conditions of myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia syndrome. The work compiled in this anthology advances reader understanding of these two disorders by sharing the most advanced research in this field.

The authors in Clinical Overview and Pathogenesis of the Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, and Other Pain Syndromes range from clinician investigators to basic scientists, from around the world, whose work has been an important overlap with the directions being taken by clinician investigators in each field. These authors review what has been learned about the clinical features of patient presentation and the contemporary treatments for each disorder. Authors also trace past progress of these disorders as a means for understanding their pathogenesis and to point toward future research directions. This unrivaled source allows physicians, dentists, researchers, and others working in this field to build on proven progress and prepare for the MYOPAIN ?98 meeting in Italy.
