In discussing the sudden and acute diseases of the nervous system, Fleischmann considers in some detail the apoplexies, cerebral thrombosis, embolism, the acute infections, traumatic lesions, and toxic diseases of the nervous system. He discusses convulsive seizures and describes the painful conditions of nervous origin and psychogenic disturbances. These types are discussed thoroughly and in a simple but lucid manner. The practical aspects of each condition are well gone into, so that the practitioner may know after reading this book exactly what to do in any sudden or acute disease. Although the book is composed of sixteen lectures given before general practitioners, the neurologist may gain much from studying it. The book is needed in the physician's library, as little of the necessary material that it contains is found in any of the general textbooks.
