This monograph is of interest particularly for one wishing to find out what the French really mean by cerebellopyramidal and cerebellothalamic syndromes. Otherwise it is not particularly convincing. No specific mention is made of the syndrome resulting from occlusion of the anterior superior cerebellar artery, nor is there anything significant dealing with the cerebellar symptoms observed in dementia paralytica or the explanation for the tremors or dysarthria observed in patients with this disease; indeed, the latest reference in this section dates back to 1920. The volume is carelessly written and has few adequate photographs, their place being taken by some highly schematic drawings; the photographs that are reproduced are decidedly inferior. It is strange that ataxia should still be considered as due to disorders of the cerebellum in the presence of loss of both motor and sensory functions.
