Arbor vitae (anatomy)
The arbor vitae /
|Latin||arbor vitae cerebelli|
|Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy|
The arbor vitae is subject to pathologies such as a cerebellar hemorrhage. Cerebellar hemorrhages arise from tumors, trauma and arteriovenous malformations among other things. The cells in the arbor vitae could also be infected by pathogens which might cause lasting damage; this in turn could lead to cerebellar ataxia.
Godfrey Blount's 1899 book Arbor Vitae was ‘a book on the nature and development of imaginative design for the use of teachers and craftsmen’.
