Abstract

In introducing this subject, the purpose is to express my convictions arising from observations in my own practice that great care should be used in rearing children, that the head may not receive injuries, lest epilepsy follow as a result. During my first years of practice I had no conclusions of my own as to the liability of epilepsy to follow injuries to the head in early youth, and sought to discover in each case presented to me a cause in heredity, reflex irritation and the many other causes given in the text books. In after years, however, when the child that had received injury to the head was brought under my care on account of epilepsy, the importance of this subject became apparent to me. I can cite a number of cases whose history I am personally familiar with from the date of the injury received to the development
