"Cerebral Venous Thrombosis (CVT) has been known for over 150 years, and is one of the few neurological conditions for which effective treatment exists. In spite of this, CVT is often overlooked, or the correct diagnosis delayed. This volume examines in detail the clinical features of CVT, its causes, and the investigations available." "This book emphasises the importance of early diagnosis and anticoagulant treatment of CVT, and it will be of great interest not only to neurologists and neurosurgeons but also to a wide range of other specialists, such as internists, haematologists, surgeons and obstetricians."--BOOK JACKET
