This book is an expansion of articles by Tilney and Riley (Neurological Bulletin, March, 1919) and Howe (Neurological Bulletin, May, 1919), with additions and further elaboration of original clinical and pathological material. There is also a general discussion of the various aspects of the disease, based on the authors' cases and reports in the literature. The book contains valuable and original detailed data, but does not give a comprehensive review of the literature of the disease, and the material—while rich and described with dependable accuracy—is not as fully elaborated as may be desired by busy readers. There are fifty-three illustrations, many of which are taken from the previously mentioned articles by the same authors.
