This is a Paris thesis by a pupil of Pierre Marie, and it is based on 129 cases observed in his service in the Salpêtrière. This master clinician has published comparatively little on encephalitis under his own name, and for that reason this thesis, of which Marie is "president," assumes great importance as it no doubt expresses his views and records observations controlled by him. It will be recalled that Marie in similar manner allowed his pupils to publish the details of his epoch-making work on acromegaly and aphasia. Seventy cases presented the parkinsonian syndrome, and forty-three various excitomotor syndromes, such as choreic and myoclonic. Sixty-eight cases are given in detail. Four of the late cases were also studied histologically. Altogether, this thesis is a gold mine of information on this timely subject.
