This is a volume of 271 pages with 82 illustrations, 21 in colors. It is a compilation of an investigation extending over nine years into the pathways of infection to the brain and its membrane from primary septic foci on the face and in the nasal and paranasal air cavities.

The main object of the investigation was to study as completely as possible the pathways of pyogenic infection to the brain and meninges from primary septic foci and in the nasal cavities. The observations and conclusions are based on the examination of 53 cases of pyogenic infection in which subsequent complications developed.
