Abstract

WE OCCASIONALLY see curious types of neurologic responses in poliomyelitis, but the case herein presented was unusual in that it involved the basal nuclei. REPORT OF A CASE H. M., a 29 year old chemist, was admitted to City Hospital on Aug. 19, 1946 with the following history. For three years, he was stationed in India, returning to the United States on April 8, 1946. In India, he experienced episodes of chills and fever. These occurred about five times a year and were controlled with quinine, and he was ill only a short time with each seizure. It was assumed that he had malaria, but at no time was blood taken for a smear or a definite diagnosis made. The present illness began July 6, 1946 when he felt bad, as though he were catching cold. His mother said that he complained of severe headaches one week prior to this
