Abstract

This paper is presented for several reasons, among which are the following: 1. It concerns an interesting and not very common malformation of the cranium. 2. This cranial malformation is associated with certain phenomena which, are so distinctive, and so suggestive of serious organic disease, that they entirely distract the attention from the conformation of the skull as a condition of any importance in the symptom-complex, whereas the truth is that the complex of phenomena will never be correctly interpreted unless the cranial malformation is considered. 3.

Both myself and a colleague, who has had a great experience with defective children, were completely baffled by the case for several weeks; and finally the fact
