Headache is one of the commonest symptoms for which patients consult the general practitioner, ophthalmologist, and otolaryngologist. This book discusses the different pathologic conditions which produce headache and which are likely to be met by all physicians. Some of the chapters in the book will be of definite value to ophthalmologists. Chapter 12 deals entirely with ophthalmic migraine; Chapter 26, with temporal arteritis, and Chapter 31, which was written by Dr. Leslie Drews, is entirely limited to headache or head pain due to ophthalmological causes and is a thorough and practical review of this subject. In this second edition several new syndromes are discussed and new diagnostic procedures and approaches to therapy have been added.
