Extract

Comprehensive Review of Headache Medicineby Morris Levin does a good job of providing accurate discussion of headaches and their management. Information regarding different aspects of this clinical discipline has been collected, sifted, and presented in a simple description divided into 5 major parts.

Part 1 covers epidemiology and basic sciences of headache medicine. The chapter on pathophysiology is particularly good, with an up-to-date understanding of headache mechanisms, and succeeds in avoiding the circuitous details in some previous books on this subject. The second part of the book is dedicated to the classification and clinical diagnosis of primary headaches. These chapters are well organized, sufficient in detail, and easy to read. The third part comprises definitions and clinical presentations of secondary headaches. These 2 parts excellently cover all of the headache syndromes described in the current International Classification of Headache Disorders.1Some of the headache types are described too briefly but this can be overlooked given the paucity of clinical evidence surrounding these.
