Vascular Diseases is a three-volume set reflecting the accumulation of new knowledge on cerebral circulation and its diseases. Chapters have been contributed by leaders in neurology worldwide on many entities not previously considered and for which much new information is now available including, for example, amyloid angiopathy, venous disorders, arterial dissections, otologic and ophthalmologic aspects of CVD, and intensive care neurology. Coverage is also given to rare disorders, including Kohlmeier-Degos disease, cerebrovascular effects of infectious diseases, Sneddon's syndrome, and Binswanger's disease.
