are found among the tumor cells which are not in rosette arrangement. Mallory's phosphotungstic acid-hematoxylin stain (×1300). COMMENT When dealing with brain tumors, as well as with other neoplasms, a definite correlation can usually be made between the clinical findings and the pathological characteristics, but a certain number of instances must be expected in which variations exist. The patient described in this paper presents many complex and bizarre problems in relating the clinical manifestations to the type of tumor finally obtained for

could be measured directly from the tracing obtained. After a few preliminary trials, the mean value of 10 consecutive measurements was considered to be the representative test reading. 5. Intelligence and Personality Tests: Just before the patients left the hospital, they were given a shortened form of the Wechsler-Bellevue Adult Intelligence Scale consisting of Vocabulary, Similarities, Block Design, and Digit Symbol test. These four items were selected because of their high correlation with scores obtained with all eleven subtests. The examination time was thus

. As a result of this anoxia, the patient was cold, cyanotic and lightheaded. Continued hyperpnea induced an acapnea, and during this phase the patient's respiration frequently was decreased below 8 a minute. Contrary to experimental findings, 1 there was no consistent correlation between the hyperpneic phase and the pulse rate and blood pressure. The blood pressure was maintained on a steady level. At times the pulse rate was increased and at other times it was unchanged. The secondary lung changes consequent to the protracted hyperpnea, which undoubtedly were

. (? other factor than nerve continuity.) [Motion pictures.] Case 6 . Median nerve repair (plasma clot) at wrist. Recovery of sensation, nerve function and chronaxie in 19 days. The method of assessment of results is described. Photographic records in motion pictures of paralysis and sensory loss, periodic electrical studies of nerve-muscle mechanism, and histologic studies of nerve ends are presented with a discussion of the correlation between these factors and the time interval between injury and repair. The difficulty of clinical evaluation is pointed out and

I n 1940, two papers appeared in the American literature, one by Otani and Ehrlich 6 and the other by Lichtenstein and Jaffe, 5 dealing with a benign granulomatous lesion of bone which has been called solitary granuloma or eosinophilic granuloma of bone. Previous to that time there were occasional references to the German literature concerning rare cases of the same condition, but no correlation was made of the widely scattered reports. Other case reports have appeared since then by Bass (1941), 1 and by Kernwein and Queen (1943), 4 and the latter stated

incompletely recovered fiber size may be anticipated 205 from the known correlation between fiber diameter on the one hand and conduction velocity and associated physiological properties of the fiber on the other. 49 However, it has never been actually determined how serious such imperfections are, particularly in comparison with the much more profound disturbance of functional relations caused by the intermingling and consequent misconnection of fibers with other than their original end-organs. The growth in width of the regenerated part of a nerve fiber occurs

often could be observed upon impact in monkeys and cats was very slight and qualitatively was the same as, though in magnitude much less than, the startle response which could be elicited prior to concussion by clapping the hands or striking the table in the proximity of the animals. The correlation between our physiologic results and our histologic observations is evident. Histologic alterations were encountered in certain upstream interneuron systems, including the motor cortex, but were most extensive and severe in the brain stem. It should be emphasized that

activity of the animal following the use of nerve grafts appeared to have been factors in determining the speed and degree of functional recovery that occurred. In those dogs that had remained in good health and vigorous, the grafts seemed to have shown less reduction in size and the animals appeared to have achieved a greater degree of functional restoration than the animals that were emaciated and relatively inactive. Although this correlation was not invariable, it does seem probable that the greater activity of the more healthy dogs was associated with an improved
