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. It provides a comprehensive survey of all types of neurological, neurophysiological, and other clinical dysfunction. This book is organized to make stroke pattern recognition easier. The volume 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. Together with its companion volume, Uncommon Causes of Stroke, these references will become an essential resource for the understanding and diagnosis of stroke.
