Abstract

Abstract I agree with Thornval 4 and Dandy 3 the Meniere's disease, migraine epilepsy, tic doloroux and many forms of vertigo and chorea are pathologically related; they are the expression of an excitation, if mild, or a toxic injury if severe, of the central gray matter of the midbrain, with selective action on certain cranial nerve centers and nuclear bodies in the cerebellum, medulla, thalamus and hypophysis; vital centers that regulate all vegetative activity. I am inclined to hope that the stress laid upon the great importance of the chemical and physical changes in the genesis ot neurocellular activity will help us to agree that the therapeutic approach to these spasmophilic disorders must aim toward the restoration of central vegetative equilibrium, by producing normal chemical and physiochemical balance in cells and fluids of the midbrain. The physician may count himself fortunate if he stumbles upon the inciting cause and brings even a measure of relief to this unhappy, fearful group of chronic cyclic sufferers.
