Stroke Syndromes

Author Affiliations


Arch Neurol. 2002;59(10):1659. doi:

edited by Julien Bogousslavsky and Louis Caplan, 2nd ed, ISBN 0-521-77142-0, 747 pp, $200, Cambridge, England, Cambridge University Press, 2001.

Seven hundred forty-seven pages devoted exclusively to descriptions of stroke syndromes is quite a lot, both of pages and cost. However, it is the most informative consideration of clinical syndromes caused by cerebral vascular disease. Almost 500 pages are given to the signs and symptoms of ischemic stroke, 20 to hemorrhages, and 25 to venous diseases. Surprisingly, only 10 are devoted to carotid occlusion—fewer than that devoted to arterial dissections or spinal stroke.
