He stresses the importance of the active role required of the AANS, the American Medical Association, and the American College of Surgeons in finding solutions to problems related to neurosurgery.

✓ The pathophysiology of galactorrhea in males with pituitary tumors is discussed, two cases are presented, and previously-reported cases are reviewed. Hypersecretion of prolactin is probably the basis for the galactorrhea. Prolactin may be secreted by the tumor itself, or the remaining normal pituitary tissue may oversecrete if the hypothalamus or the pituitary stalk is compressed.

✓ The authors report a series of 70 patients with 161 multiple intracranial aneurysms. There was no mortality in 23 patients in whom all aneurysms were treated intracranially. Unoperated aneurysms later caused morbidity or mortality in eight of 33 patients. The authors believe that patients who have had a subarachnoid hemorrhage should have four-vessel arteriography to identify all aneurysms, and that all surgically accessible aneurysms should be treated, preferably intracranially in good-risk patients who have no disabling neurological deficit.
