Wolff's Headache and Other Head Pain
This is the classic reference book on headache, revised for the first time by an international group of contributors. All the chapters have been updated and the book has been reorganized in many places. In addition to the many chapters freshly rewritten, there are new ones on the inheritance and epidemiology of migraine, the pathophysiology of migraine, and chronic paroxysmal hemicrania. Advances in techniques of neurological diagnosis as they relate to headache are thoroughly discussed. Wolff remains a valuable guide for neurologists, internists, and many other physicians.
