Hemiplegia due to cranial injury is perhaps of more frequent occurrence than we have been led to believe, although this complication was present in only thirteen of the 614 cases of fracture of the skull admitted to the City Hospital during the past five years. In two other cases there was paralysis of one leg, and in one case the side of the patient's face, opposite to the scalp wound, was motionless. A brief report of the cases in point follows the history of my own case.
