This short monograph is an excellent summary of knowledge of the choroid plexuses. The discussion of their physiology shows how far from established are many theories concerning the formation and circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid. The chapter on pathology demonstrates how unimportant are the choroid plexuses for neuropathology. There is some original material concerning the protective barrier between the blood and the cerebrospinal fluid, which the author locates in the leptomeninx.
