have preferred to designate this condition, which is usually associated with bilateral acoustic tumors, as meningiomatosis rather than to include it in the group of multiple meningiomas. Using this strict classification, they were able to isolate only three examples of true multiple meningiomas from their series of 295 cases of intracranial meningiomas. The first case of multiple meningiomas reported was that of Anfimow and Blumenau 1 in 1889, who found at necropsy four large and several smaller dural endotheliomas. Similar cases have been reported by others

. In his book, Cushing gave the details of what he termed an intracapsular enucleation of acoustic tumors, accomplished after a bilateral suboccipital exposure by means of the “crossbow incision” ( Fig. 9 ). By this method, as much as possible of the contents of the capsule was evacuated by painstaking curettage and careful hemostasis, but the capsule itself, with its vascular connections to the pons and elsewhere, was not removed. This meant, of course, that most of the tumors would recur after greater or lesser intervals, unless they became quiescent, but even so

regarded as one of the most frequent and early manifestations of acoustic tumors. Instability . Thirty-one patients (74 per cent) were aware of staggering or unsteady gait. In 10 cases it was absent, and in 1 case questionable. Only occasionally was it toward the side of the lesion. Instability was one of the earlier symptoms, having been present from two months to three years, with an average for all patients of one year and three months. Headache . As would be expected, this was a frequent complaint, being present in 34 patients (81 per cent). Its duration was from

A coustic tumors rank third in the statistics of brain tumors operated on in our clinic. Out of a total of 3,265 brain tumors verified to Dec. 31, 1946 there were 304 unilateral acoustic tumors, or 9.3 per cent. The total number of neurinomas is somewhat higher as there were 6 cases of bilateral acoustic tumors and 4 cases of neurinomas arising from the 5th nerve. In previous communications from this clinic, 2, 3, 4 the early and late results up to 1930 and 1939 were reported. In the present paper we shall review the entire material of acoustic tumors from

which was a report in 1929 of his operative results in a group of cases. 34 After the development of neurosurgery at la Pitié in 1933, about 500 brain tumors were operated on every year. It would be redundant to enumerate the articles published from la Pitié Among the most significant were those on sphenoidal wing 5 and suprasellar meningiomas, 8 craniopharyngiomas, 6 acoustic tumors, 4 cerebellar hemangiomas, 20 corpus callosum gliomas, 43 and epilepsy. 16 They were all inspired by Clovis Vincent and, when published under another name, were even partly
