This disease, which was first described by Adams1 in 1827, did not receive general recognition until 1846; at this time Stokes2 published his studies of the subject and presented a more complete clinical picture. After this it was known as Adams-Stokes' syndrome. In the past few years, since the pathology has been more definitely determined, it is usually described as Adams-Stokes' disease.

The disease is perhaps not as rare as one is led to believe in looking over the literature. Michael and Beutlemiller3 were able to collect about seventy cases, the majority of which were reported in the last few years. The fact that cases are more frequently reported in recent years is due to the great interest aroused by the discovery by His of the auriculoventricular bundle and to the studies of the physiologic function of this bundle by Erlanger.
