Answer

In 1967, Carithers published the first thorough review of the world's literature on CSD, which included 567 references and detailed the manifold clinical presentations. This landmark publication of a series of 1200 cases evaluated by a single observer put the varied clinical presentations into perspective and provided the first realistic analysis of the spectrum of disease.
