ABSTRACT
The arteries of 322 brains obtained at consecutive autopsies in a general hospital were studied in order to determine the presence or absence of atherosclerosis. The findings were correlated with age at death, sex, blood pressure and diagnosis of the principal cause of death, and were compared with the findings in similar series of other authors. Age and hypertension were, as it would be expected, the two main factors connected with the appearance of cerebral atherosclerosis. The influence of sex and the differences between the prevalence of cerebral atherosclerosis in the present series and in others were discussed.
