This volume is based on the proceedings of four full day Main Theme Symposia held during the `XIV World Congress on Neurology', 22-27 October 1989 in New Delhi, India. The contributions, submitted by internationally renowned scientists, review the current state-of-the-art on specific, compelling problems encountered daily in neurology. The book is divided into five sections, each of which assumes a different topic as its focal point. The first section deals with Cerebrovascular Disease (CVD), and is devoted to both acute and chronic CVD. CVD was the main theme eight years ago during the XII World Congress of Neurology in Kyoto and since then many new developments have taken place relating to the diagnosis and management thereof. Among topics discussed are epidemiology, mechanism of cerebral ischaemia and medical management of acute stroke, and areas pertaining to stroke-in-young, including acute cerebral venous occlusions and arterial strokes. AIDS, the twentieth century plague is spreading uninhibited throughout the world and continues to attract the attention of neuroscientists because of its numerous neurological complications.
