2. French Retrospect. Ph. Chaslin on Cerebral Sclerosis


Contribution à l'Etude de la Sclerose Cérébrale. “Archives de Médécine Expérimentale,” Tome iii., p. 305.

More recent methods and investigations must be held to modify some of the results of this observer. His paper deals, directly, only with the particular form of cerebral sclerosis frequent in epileptics. In some of these the lesions were visible to the naked eye, some convolutions being atrophied, indurated, rough or smooth; and the cornu ammonis and medulla oblongata were also more or less affected. One part of an altered gyrus contained some abnormal nerve-cells, and between them neuroglia fibrils; another part was formed solely of overgrown neuroglia. The point of departure of this overgrowth appears to be the spider-cells.
