A Treatise on Apoplexy, Cerebral Hemorhage, Cerebral Embolism, Cerebral Gout, Cerebral Rheumatism, and Epedmic Cerebro-Spinal Meningitis.
- New York ; Wm. Wood & Co., 1873, 8°, XIX, (1), 395, (1) pp., orig. Leinenband; St.a.Tit. Rare First Edition! - - "MORE THAN A HUNDRED YEARS AGO, John Lidell ( -1883) observed that "red softening commences after 24-48 hours, dating from the apoplectiform attack" of cerebral embolism. While his pathological descriptions are arguably ambiguous, Lidell's observations surely are among the earliest descriptions of hemorrhagic infarct (HI). Our clinical-pathological concepts of His then lay relatively dormant until 1951, when Fisher and Adams emphasized the association of HI and embolism and proposed their well-known hypothesis about the mechanism of hemorrhagic transformation. HI remained an autopsy diagnosis until computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) permitted diagnosis during life. Recent studies, including two in this issue of STROKE, have refined our clinical concepts of HI. Treatment of acute stroke patients with thrombolytic agents and anticoagulants, both having secondary brain hemorrhage as their most feared complication, has rekindled interest in the occurrence and mechanisms of hemorrhagic infarction.,", Robert G. Hart & J. Donald Easton, Hemorrhagic Infarcts M. Stroke, 17 (1986): pp.586-589 - - "During the latter part of the nineteenth century, interest turned to the nature and causes of brain hemorrhage. In 1873, Lidell, a surgeon and anatomist, included a section on cerebral hemorrhage in his treatise on brain diseases. - Lidell's description of the main gross pathological features of brain hematomas is applicable even today. Size of the clot varies from that of a hemp-seed to that of the fist. If the extravasation occurs in the vicinity of a ventricle, it often breaks through the walls of the latter, and flows therein. Extravasations forming near the surface of the brain not infrequently break through the cortical substance and escape into the subarachnoid space. Usually there is only one hemorrhagic effusion in the whole brain, occasionally several. The most frequent seat of these effusions is the corpus striatum, the thalamus opticus, and the large medullary masses of the cerebral hemispheres; less frequently, they occur in the cortical substance of the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and in the pons varioli. - It was well known in Lidell's time that spontaneous hematomas usually occurred in the putamen, thalamus, lobar white matter, cerebellum, and pons, and the gross appearance and drainage patterns of these hematomas were described accurately."
