In order to estimate the pathological lesions of the central nervous system joined with tumors in other seat, the authors studied 695 brains of which 195 (28%) are proper to subjects with malignant extracerebral neoplasms. The noticed lesions include: metastases (15.9%); carebro-vascular alterations (64.6%); infections and inflammatory diseases (33.8%); pathologies of malformation or senility (31.8%), agonic lesions not specific (26.6%); alterations of the white and gray matter of uncertain classification (10%) and toxic-metabolical lesions (2%). The greater part are non specific alterations, they are combinated with tumors but aren't subordinate to tumors. A causal relation with the neoplasm, for the most part indirect, can be found into the infectious and inflammatory pathologies, into the lesions of the white and gray matter and into the toxic-metabolical alterations.
