This well-documented study by a leading Rumanian neurologist includes a good English summary and a translation for all 49 figures. Varieties of aphasia are described in terms of macroscopic localization. The evolution of the aphasic syndrome was assessed by repeated clinical examinations in 133 patients with expanding intracranial lesions. Semeiological contributions to the problems of aphasia are discussed in the first part (four chapters). Chapter 2 analyzes coexisting psychic and aphasic disturbances in temporal lobe tumors. The second part of the book (chapters V-VII) discusses clinical and pathological aspects in tumors producing aphasic syndromes. Instances are also presented where the gross and microscopic lesions do not adequately explain the appearance of aphasia. The final part of the book discusses the close interdependence between thought and speech in the sphere of clinical neurology.
