The authors of the first edition worked together again to revise data for the second edition of this popular volume. Based at three of the world's leading centers for the study and treatment of headache, these experts share their insights on every aspect of this common and irritating condition. In particular, the sections on migraine, cluster headache and vascular disease have been updated. Based on the classification system developed by the International Headache Society, Headache in Clinical Practice provides those interested in headache with an up-to-date compendium of current opinion, from epidemiology, pathophysiology and investigation, through options for intervention and management.
