Migraine: Manifestations, Pathophysiology, and Management, Second Edition, is a much expanded, updated monograph that focuses in detail on migraine's diverse variations, its pathophysiology, and its treatment. Authored by a clinician/scientist who himself suffers from migraine, the book's premise is that the clinical significance of migraine and its treatment are intelligible only if the physician understands the anatomical, physiological, and pharmacological factors underlying both head pain and the other manifestations of migraine. The book provides clear clinical descriptions of the myriad of specific migraine syndromes, and discusses the rationale for, and elements of, a sensitive, inclusive patient history. Also covered are important but sometimes ignored topics such as environmental triggering of migraine and myofascial syndromes. The Second Edition also bridges the gap between basic science and clinical practice by explaining those substantive advances made in understanding fundamental mechanisms of head pain and aura. Recent knowledge about genetics, hormonal changes, cerebral circulation, nitric oxide, peptides, central sensitization of trigeminal neurons, and the role of periaqueductal gray matter buttress the discussion of basic mechanisms. On the treatment side, the Second Edition reflects the impressive advances in pharmacological approaches to migraine. There is a greatly expanded section on the triptans and their mechanisms of action, and rationales and practical information about the use of all other viable anti-migraine and prophylactic drugs. Psychobiological aspects of stress and stress management, elimination of environmental stimuli, the educational facets of management, and aspects of the patient/physician interaction so crucial in the treatment of migraine are all discussed. Special problems associated with the care of women, children, the elderly, patients with intractable headaches, and emergency department patients are thoroughly reviewed. In sum, this scholarly, well-referenced book offers in one volume a comprehensive scientific and clinical discussion of migraine headache.

The rapid pace of advance in the basic and clinical sciences has led to striking changes in the practice of medicine. This is particularly evident in clinical neurology. Twenty years ago neurology was justly criticised for its preoccupation with diagnosis and classification, and for the relative paucity of treatments then available. All this has now changed, and neurology has become a treatment-oriented specialty. This change has been brought about partly as a result of the introduction of new and accurate methods of diagnosis, especially immunological, electrophysiological and imaging techniques, and partly as a result of new forms of treatment. Examples of these new treatments include the control of cerebral edema, new antibiotics for infections of the nervous system, drug level measurements for the evaluation of the adequacy of treatment of epilepsy and advances in neurosurgical technique. In addition, many patients presenting with neurological disorders are found to be suffering not from primary diseases of the nervous system but rather from neurological compli cations of systemic disease. Vascular disease, cancer and infections are common examples. The degenerative disorders have recently become a focus of attention as their importance in the aging societies of the developed Western countries has been realised, and this raises the hope of improved management and treatment of these disorders.

It has been suspected since more than a century that disturbed ocular blood flow (OBF) may play a role in the pathogenesis of glaucoma. Reduced OBF has been measured in glaucoma patients by numberless centres with different techniques in different tissues of the eye. And reduced OBF has been proven to be of prognostic value. Nevertheless the implementation of this knowledge into clinical practice has been very slow. This practical book will help many ophthalmologists to better understand glaucoma. The reading of this book will not only improve patient care but also give the reader intellectual satisfaction.
