The increasing interest in the relative merits of the administration of carbamazepine (Tegretol®) and various surgical procedures makes this book on facial pain particularly timely. It does not appear unusual for such a monograph to emanate from a symposium of 28 experts when the goal was to present a comprehensive, up-to-date, multidisciplinary statement of the knowledge.
Remarkably clear, succinct displays of the anatomy, fine structure, and neurophysiology (microelectrode studies) of the trigeminal sensory system (peripheral sensory neuron, the suspected center of trigeminal neuralgia; the medullary neuron; and supranuclear structures) both in health and in disease are found throughout the book.
