On the Symptomatology of Tabes Dorsalis in the Pre-ataxic Stage, and on the Influence of Optic Atrophy on the Course of the Disease [Zur Symptomatologie der Tabes Dorsalis im praeataktischen Stadium, und über den Einfluss des Optischatrophie auf den Gang der Krankheit]. (Monat. f. Psychiat. u. Neurol., July and August, 1900.) Förster

Extract

This is an analysis of twenty-seven cases of tabes in the pre-ataxic stage. They do not appear to be all undoubted cases of tabes. For example, the diagnosis of Case 18 is made solely on the fact that the patient has had syphilis and now has optic atrophy; and the author rather begs the question in the second half of his paper by asking, “What would become of diagnosis if there existed a genuine nontabetic optic atrophy?”
