ABSTRACT

This monograph of 108 pages is an unchanged reprint of the section with the same title from the "Handbuch der Neurologie," edited by M. Lewandowsky and published by Springer. The various phases of the disease are considered carefully and fully, especially the symptomatology and the epidemiology and full notice is taken of the recent work on the etiology. This is probably the best discussion of the epidemiology that we have; the rôle of abortive cases and healthy carriers in spreading the disease is clearly shown in the author's study of Swedish epidemics. At the end is a good bibliography. The name Heine-Medinsche Krankheit was suggested by Wickman some years since in order to include under one term all the forms of clinical disease caused by the virus of acute poliomyelitis; the spinal, the bulbar, the encephalitic, etc. It does not seem at all necessary to introduce this name into English
