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.
