This monograph probably clarifies the diagnosis of brain tumors in the author's own mind much more than it adds anything to the knowledge of intracranial tumors. He has repeated many things that have been well known in this country for several years. In an attempt to add new material he has placed considerable stress on the finding of increased pain responses and reflexes, particularly over the face, head and extremities, in intracranial tumors. He has stated that there is an elevated pain threshold in the presence of an altered physiologic action in the brain. Whereas clinical observations are always of value, it would seem that these are a bit far fetched; and they are no real contribution to the diagnosis of intracranial tumors.
