This volume is the fourth in a series developed under the auspices of the World Federation of Neurology to meet the needs of neurologists who must practice medicine without many of the advantages that are often taken for granted in the industrialized world. It is targeted to neurologists practicing in low-resource environments and those who wish to practice cost-effective neurology, and addresses issues important for neurologists in developing countries that are not covered in standard textbooks.The recent surveys by the World Health Organization (WHO) have shown that stroke is the second cause of death worldwide, and the first cause of acquired physical disability in adults.

Edited by Julien Bogousslavsky, a recognized international authority on stroke, and written by an outstanding panel of experts, Stroke underlines the need for global, worldwide, concerted actions against one of the most devastating medical conditions. A range of topics are covered, including: The epidemiology of stroke Stroke subtypes and rationale for their separation Recovery and rehabilitation Stroke in developing countries;The Epidemiology of Stroke; Stroke Subtypes and Rationale for their Separation; Recovery and Rehabiliation; Stroke in Developing Countries.
