In our first report of this method of treatment of paresis,1 only three patients had received any systematic treatment. Our first injection was given, Jan. 12, 1915. Since that time we have made injections in other cases, ten of which were treated at a sufficiently remote date to make a report now of value. Thus this article is based on the results obtained in the first thirteen consecutive cases, in all but two of which three injections were given, and in two, five injections each. A great deal of care has been taken in studying these cases both before and after treatment. We were particular to select for injection only those patients who undoubtedly had paresis, and in all cases the results of the examination of the spinal and ventricular fluids were carefully studied both before and after each injection. In none of these cases were there any symptoms
