This volume is an epitome of the most recent data and views on pain. There are thirty-two contributions, which cover the subject of pain from all its angles, namely sensory end organs, afferent fibers and tracts, levels of integrations and pain threshold. Various aspects of clinical pain are discussed in detail. These are head pains, articular disorders, diseases of the eye, genitourinary tract, heart and lungs, gastrointestinal tract and skin, cerebral central pain and pain of the peripheral nerves. Several neurosurgical procedures are described for the relief of pain. This is an excellent book and is highly recommended to all physicians.
