The majority of patients who present with headaches are successfully managed. At times, however, even experienced clinicians find themselves confounded by complicated patient histories or presentations and wonder “what do I do in this setting?”
In this book, Newman and Levin have tried to predict and help with the management of such difficult cases and explain what they would do in particularly challenging clinical situations. They have described a series of difficult presentations as 33 representative “mini-consultation” scenarios about headache and facial pain.
