Abstract

NEWVESTIBULARCOMPLEXES FORLOCALIZATION OFLESIONS OF THEBRAIN. DR. LEWISFISHER (by invitation).

The conclusions presented were based on an analysis of 139 verified lesions of the brain. The lesions were: 43 supratentorial, hemispheric tumors, 22 midcentral tumors, 37 cerebellar tumors and 37 tumors of the cerebellopontile angle. An attempt was made to solve certain problems, such as:

  1. 1. Indications of a lesion of the brain.

  2. 2. The value of vestibular tests in the determination of increased intracranial pressure.

  3. 3. Observations indicative of a supratentorial and subtentorial lesion.

  4. 4. Observations indicative of the laterality of the lesion.

  5. 5. Observations on the vestibular group which were diagnostic for each anatomic area.

  6. 6. Differential diagnostic signs between various anatomic areas.

Of the observations indicative of a lesion of the brain, the most important were: spontaneous vertical nystagmus, poor movements of the pelvic girdle, marked disproportion between nystagmus and vertigo
