The Experimental Production of Charcot-Bouchard Miliary Arterial Microaneurysms in Hypertensive Rabbits

  • C. A. Santos-Buch


The experimental production of miliary aneurysms of small-sized arteries of the brain and of the iris of hypertensive albino rabbits has been demonstrated in our laboratories recently. Studies of these miliary aneurysms, utilizing careful ophthalmoscopic observations and subsequent microdissection, have demonstrated morphologic characteristics similar to those associated with the intracerebral miliary aneurysms originally described by Charcot and Bouchard in man (5).
