Arteriosclerosis takes second place to a discussion (in German) of clotting and fibrinolytic mechanisms in relation to the metabolism of arterial walls. By means of histochemical and immunofluorescent tests Dr. Bleyl demonstrates the phenomenon of "fibrinogen-perfusion" of vessel walls as part of a general nutritive mechanism. An intramural disturbance of the relation between this "perfusion" and the metabolism of the vessel wall is considered an important factor in the pathogenesis of arteriosclerosis. Duguid's thesis of arteriosclerosis, based on the incorporation of extramural fibrin thrombi into the wall, is accordingly modified by the author. Good illustrations and detailed descriptions of the
