Since the fifth edition of this classic volume was published, a great deal of progress has been made in the study of headache. Much more is now known about the mechanisms, neurobiology, and epidemiology of the subject. This new edition of Wolff's Headache, for which Donald Dalessio has been joined by Stephen Slberstein as co-editor, covers all of these advances, including the discovery of serotonin receptors in the brain which has led to a new class of drugs for treating headache, and the publication of a new international classification of the various types of headache. New chapters have been written on diagnosis, headache due to abnormal intracranial pressure, and clinical observations. Many of the chapters have been completely rewritten and all have been thoroughly updated making this the most comprehensive and authoritative coverage of the headache available today.show more
