Dramatic advances in diagnosis and management of stroke have taken place over the last decade, and with them have come an increasing interest in and appreciation of the diversity of cerebrovascular disease. Existing textbooks have focused primarily on the more common causes and presentations of stroke. However, given the more than 700 000 strokes that occur annually in the United States, a significant number of patients have unusual clinical presentations or causes. These two companion books address many details of stroke that are not fully addressed elsewhere. They were initially published in one volume as the first edition of Stroke Syndromes but are now presented as a pair of independent texts.
