Not illustrated. 1885 edition.

Hemiansesthesia may accompany the motor palsy, from implication of the sensory path in the tegmentum of the crus. Hemiopia may result from damage to the optic tract, but is very rare, since the lesion ia usually situated close to the pons.

It may be well, therefore, to postpone their consideration until our next meeting. LECTURE XIV. DIAGNOSIS OF THE SEAT OF DISEASE (Continued): PONS, MEDULLA, CEREBELLUM; BASE; VENTRICLES--REVIEW OF SYMPTOMS IN RELATION TO LOCALITY--BASAL LESIONS. Gentlemen,"--In the last lecture, you will remember, we passed in review the symptoms that are produced by disease in various parts of the cerebral hemispheres, in the crus cerebri, and in the corpora quadrigemina. To-day we resume our survey, and must notice first the effect of lesions in the mesencephalon, where the paths from, the hemisphere to the limbs are brought into proximity, where the chief cranial nerves have their origin, and where an important junction, is effected between the fibres of the cerebellum and those of the cerebral hemisphere. In the pans Varolii a lesion usually causes very characteristic symptoms, due to the implication of the motor path and of the cranial nerves that arise from the pons. Tumors that grow slowly, however, and especially infiltrating tumors, may attain a considerable size without...show more
