In this Thesis I intend to give the Analysis of
Thirty-eight Cases of Intracranial Tumour in Children
which came under my observation, either directly or
indirectly, during four years at the Infirmary for
I would emphasise the fact that I have no intention of writing a treatise on the subject, but simply
of giving the cases as I found them. In some matters, indeed, the statistics and my observations
differ from those recorded in the standard textbooks.
The cases, a list and the general particulars
of which are in the frontispiece, were all taken
without selection as they came to the Infirmary.
The fact that I was able to obtain post-mortem examinations of thirty -six of these adds to the value
and interest of the analysis as such.
