On account of some peculiarities in the way of symptoms, I report a case of apoplexy.

A female, aged 81, was stricken Sept. 10, 1902, with all the symptoms of cerebral hemorrhage. She was unconscious and paralyzed, which condition continued nearly twenty-four hours, when consciousness returned. In a short time she could move her left foot, and we soon discovered that she had hemiplegia of the right side.

In a short time she could use her left extremities, so that she could feed herself, lying on her right side. She remained in bed about two months, when we allowed her to sit up a few hours at a time in the morning and afternoon.

In three months she was able to walk with a little assistance. She now ate her meals at the table, and sat up nearly all day. Her appetite and digestion were nearly as good as before she was taken sick.
