The relationship of ophthalmology to neurology is a vital one. Especially is this true from the standpoint of anatomy and physiology. Dr. Roy R. Grinker in "Neurology" has clearly outlined the anatomy of the visual pathways in combination with a sound physiologic conception of their function and their relationships in the central nervous system. He has also carefully handled the subject of the extra-ocular muscles and their central connections. Though these subjects are well presented in a number of separate works, their intimate correlation with other cerebral functions is not always so clearly presented.

Neurologic disorders frequently involve the visual and oculomotor pathways. Therefore, the ophthalmologist is often called on to assist in localizing the lesion producing such disorders. As a consultant, his understanding of the interrelationship of ophthalmology and neurology is necessary. The ophthalmologic findings in both intracranial and extracranial disorders are reviewed. Intracranial neoplasms, multiple sclerosis and
