This monograph by Andia contains largely the results of his own investigations of the anatomic and pathologic characteristics of the choroid plexus. The various constituents of this formation—the tuft cells, blood vessels, nerves, etc., are described in great detail. The subject is also treated histopathologically and from the point of view of the embryologic and comparative anatomic features. For comparative anatomic studies Andia chose the choroid plexus of the hare (Lepus europeus), and of pathologic conditions he describes meningitis, dementia paralytica and angiomatosis. The spinal fluid is discussed in six pages. It originates, of course, in the choroid plexus, but the author enumerates briefly other views. He attaches much importance to the presence of the corpora arenacea in the glomus of the choroid plexus and sees in them clinical significance.
The presentation is clear and conscientious and contains sixty illustrations, some in colors. No literature is appended, though the names
