Headache: Diagnosis and Treatment

JAMA. 1959;170(16):2033. doi:10.1001/jama.1959.03010160149026

There is some duplication in the text, for each author has been permitted to express his own viewpoint, but this seems to add to, rather than detract from, the volume. While the authors state in the preface that the book is written for the practicing physician, it is so comprehensive in its scope that physicians in all fields of medicine should find it interesting reading.

The book has full chapters on mechanisms of headache; diagnostic principles and methods; principles of pharmacotherapy; the eyes, ears, nose, and throat
