THE TREATMENT of spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage is based on the reports in the literature of series of cases. There have been conclusions drawn from these series which at times have been conflicting. Certainly a very large series of cases followed in extreme detail and analyzed minutely would be of great help in resolving many of the controversies which have risen out of the inconsistencies reported in the literature. However, until this critical series is presented, it would be of value to consolidate these reports so that as much information as possible might be gained from the available data. This would also point up the factors that should be checked in future studies of this type.
In this presentation the major series of spontaneous subarachnoid bleeding * have been gathered together, and the material presented has been consolidated, wherever possible, so that a more informative result could be obtained.
