Migraine: Manifestations, Pathophysiology, and Management Second Edition focuses 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. This significantly expanded and thoroughly updated second edition combines a reasonable and practical approach to the clinical aspects of migraine, an assessment of the mechanisms of headache, and a review of management programmes for migraine.show more

Review quote

"A welcome addition ... There is much to commend in it. It is laid out in a logical, lucid manner, with very full discussions of the scientific and clinical aspects of this condition ... renders the various concepts accessible to both the general neurologist and those with a more specialist interest in the field.
