On Hemorrhages and False Membranes within the Cerebral Subdural Space, occurring in the Insane (including the so-called Pachymeningitis.)

  • Joseph Wiglesworth (a1)
Extract

The title of this paper implies the assumption that the current doctrine with reference to the condition known as pachymeningitis is not the true one; obviously the use of this term signifies that the pathological process underlying the morbid changes met with is one of inflammation, and that without the operation of this agency they would not occur. Now, without denying the possible occurrence of a condition to which the name of cerebral pachymeningitis might with appropriateness be applied, my endeavour will be to bring forward arguments and proofs to show that the condition which usually passes under that term is not the result of inflammation at all, but that all the phenomena met with may be explained as the simple result of effusion of blood into the subdural space (arachnoid cavity).
