File: "Pituitary Tumours (first 100 cases)"

Scope and Content

Substantial file of operation reports regarding operations of pituitary tumours. Largely comprises of detailed typescript notes giving the name of the patient, date of operation and description of the operation and immediate after care. Other information is often given (especially in later notes), such as the surgeon (usually but not always Jefferson), hospital (usually MRI), others involved in the operation, and more detailed medical histories. The notes are usually made by the assistant and some include sketches. There are a number of manuscript case notes in Jefferson's hand from 1930 and also a very detailed typescript case study, possibly intended for publication.
