This monograph is an attempt to show the practical importance of malformations and vascular tumors of the brain. It is not intended to be a complete study of the question but attempts principally to give a summary of such problems as seem apparent at the present time. Therefore, the cases on which the study rests are given very briefly, and only to illustrate certain points. Most of the material comes from the clinic of the late Prof. Clovis Vincent, but many cases have been accumulated later.
The book begins with a discussion of intracranial aneurysms; it follows lines of thought that are fairly acceptable. The second half deals with cerebral angiomas. The classification given is one that is now generally accepted—arterial angiomas, cerebral angiomas, Sturge-Weber syndrome, cavernous angiomas, and hemangiomas of the Lindau type—and ends with the general nosological study of these tumors and malformations. There is an abundant bibliography,
