About this book

This book provides the practicing physician with a practical approach to the diagnosis, evaluation and management of headache disorders based on lessons learned from real-life headache patients. Internationally well-known headache experts present cases from their own practice and discuss the evaluation and management of each case step by step. The clearly structured chapters cover initial evaluation and diagnostic work-up, imaging, differential diagnosis, interpretation of findings of further work-up, treatment options and response and key points. A wide spectrum of headache types is covered, including both primary and secondary headache disorders. The reader will learn how to diagnose and manage different headache disorders directly from the clinical experience of experts. Case-Based Diagnosis and Management of Headache Disorders will be of value for neurologists and a wide range of physicians – from those in other specialties to primary care givers.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book is designed to help clinicians diagnose and treat the various types of headaches from the various migraine syndromes through the numerous presentations of headache and structural causes of headaches. … the audience for this book includes experienced neurologists to new primary care clinicians. … This is an extraordinarily well-written book on a common diagnosis that is frequently accompanied by significant patient anxiety and emotion.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2014)
