This monograph is a comprehensive discussion of intracranial complications with detailed emphasis on brain abscess.
The first section deals with the various intracranial complications following skull injuries. There is an evaluation of these complications, including incidence, pathogeneses, and bacteriology. The second section deals with infections of rhinologic or otitic origin. Subsequent sections are concerned with symptomatology and therapy of intracranial suppurations in association with osteomyelitis of the skull, thrombosis of the intracranial sinuses and cerebral veins, subdural infections, and suppurative leptomeningitis. The last section deals with brain abscess, its pathogenesis, pathologic anatomy, symptomatology, treatment, and prognosis. This entire text is replete with case reports and references with comparative tables of many other investigators. This monogram brings out the numerous problems involved and brings to date the changes in pathology and therapy as they are influenced by antibiotic therapy. This is an excellent treatise for the otologist and the neurosurgeon.
