Uncommon causes of stroke by Louis R Caplan( )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2018 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compendium is unique because it provides authoritative discussions on the less common causes of stroke. Discussed within are various forms of angiitis, coagulation disorders, infective, paraneoplastic and metabolic disorders that may be associated with stroke, and a number of rare syndromes such as Eales disease and Fabry's disease. This new edition contains detailed, up-to-date information about the nature, diagnosis, and treatment of those relatively uncommon types of cerebrovascular disease that cause strokes. New chapters include stroke in patients with Lyme disease, scleroderma, Cogan's syndrome, Chaga's disease, and HIV.
