ABSTRACT

Cases which show the typical symptoms of Landry's syndrome in characteristic form are sufficiently rare to make even isolated instances worth reporting, where they have been minutely observed. Much discussion has been spent on the question of the existence or nonexistence of such a morbid entity as Landry's disease, but a good deal of it has been wasted on the consideration of cases reported as Landry's, but really not properly coming under that title. Whatever name may have been given to these cases and however much confusion may have arisen from imperfectly observed or incompletely described instances, there is certainly a symptom-group which can not be put under the heads of multiple neuritis, of spreading myelitis, or of poliomyelitis, but which does fit the description of "acute ascending paralysis" or Landry's disease. The points of diagnostic distinction are that the onset should be acute, its character generally ascending, with paralysis
