This is the third book on neuropathology which has been written by Dr. Scheinker in recent years. In this volume the author states that he has attempted to present neuropathology in its relation to internal medicine and general pathology. Much of the book is devoted to the relation of disturbances of the central nervous system to cardiovascular disease—184 of 345 pages. In this section the author emphasizes his impression of the importance of functional vascular disturbances: vasospasm, vasoparalysis, stasis, and thrombosis without disease of the vessel walls. Much of what the author has to say is controversial, but he does not supply sufficient factual data to permit the reader to evaluate his hypotheses.
