Some Aspects of Ocular Melanotic Growth

  • Arnold Loewenstein


Ida Mann (1926) stressed some years ago her conviction that the question of pigment origin must not be looked upon from the narrow sphere of ophthalmological pathology. Jean Nordmann (1947), indeed, has subscribed to this demand in an admirable way, so far as could be achieved in a short survey attempting to follow Up the origin of the pigmented cells in the higher vertebrates. Relationship to light is one aspect, the influence of the hypothalamus another; such views are plentiful. Restriction to higher vertebrates appears to be dictated by sheer necessity.
