From November 1935 to April 1942, there were observed in the laboratories of the Queens General Hospital 36 cases of intracranial aneurysm affecting the cerebral arteries in a total of 3080 autopsies. The report that follows will describe the pertinent anatomical and some of the clinical features associated with these aneurysms. On the basis of the histopathological findings, an attempt will be made to throw further light on the mechanism of rupture of the so-called "berry" aneurysms.
Numerous excellent descriptions of the clinical syndrome and of particular pathological features of ruptured aneurysms of the cerebral arteries abound in the literature.
