This monograph deals with vertigo and deafness of vascular origin. Primarily, the author presents an ontogenetic study of the circulation of the internal ear, which includes both the cephalic and the cochleolabyrinthine portions. He then describes the anatomic-physiologic and physiopathologic implications of the vascular distribution of this area, wth some suggestions for therapy.
The final chapter deals with vascular accidents in the cerebral peduncles, and the corticovestibular tracts. Here, case histories and postmortem findings help to correlate the symptomatology with his newer theories. A study of this monograph can be of great help in evaluating some of the problems that are found in many cases of deafness and vertigo of obscure origin.
