The following article is a preliminary report on the treatment of cases of acute infantile paralysis by the Kenny method. The authors state that this does not represent any original work on their part but is strictly a report of observation of the treatment as carried out by Miss Elizabeth Kenny and attempts only to present her ideas. Results of treatment of late cases were not included in this report because the period of observation was not sufficiently long. It is obvious that several years must elapse before a definite evaluation of the method can be made in terms of final results.Continuation of the work for at least one additional year has been arranged for at the University of Minnesota Hospital and the Minneapolis General Hospital. It is hoped that a more complete report will be forthcoming at the expiration of that time.It is, of course, recognized
