This book has been developed from the article on "Paralysis of the Peripheral Nerves" in Kraus-Brugsch's System of Special Pathology and Therapy. It is divided into two parts, the first dealing with general and the second with special considerations. In the first part are included methods of examination, etiology, pathology, course, diagnosis and treatment, and in the second is a description of the results of paralysis of special nerves. Although enriched by the observation of 516 cases of war injuries, the material for the most part deals more with types of lesions encountered in civil practice. Considerable space is devoted to the differential diagnosis of lesions of the central nervous system from the peripheral nervous system, perhaps more than is needed.
