Most of the original material forming the basis of this book, including the illustrations, has appeared in two articles in the Neurological Bulletin, one by Tilney and Henry Alsop Riley, the other by Howe. In Part 1, based on the former article, twenty cases are related and subdivided into the following groups: (1) lethargic, (2) cataleptic, (3) paralysis agitans type, (4) polio-encephalitic, (5) anterior poliomyelitic, (6) posterior and (9) infantile (neonatorum). There are, brief chapters on analysis of symptoms, prognosis and diagnosis, nature of the disease and treatment. In Part 2, based on Howe's cases, a different classification is used, namely: (1) cases with general symptoms indicating involvement of the nervous system, but absent, scant or fleeting localizing signs, (2) meningitic type, (3) cortical type, (4) pyramidal system type, (5) thalamic type, (6) corpus striatum (extrapyramidal type), (7) brain stem type, (8) cerebellar type, (9) spinal type, (10) peripheral nerve
