During the past twelve years, epidemic encephalitis has received the attention of a host of workers in various fields of medicine. The bacteriologist, the internist, the ophthalmologist, and even the neurosurgeon have been baffled by this disease at some time or other. The general medical practitioner is constantly called on to diagnose and treat this condition. It is the neurologist, however, who has become most engrossed in this disease problem. The usual run of cases has fallen with almost monotonous regularity into some particular group, depending on the chief presenting symptoms or the anatomic localization of the pathologic process. It is therefore the unsual cases that have aroused the greatest interest, as they challenge the diagnostic skill of the physician. For this reason the case reported here is presented.
