I am aware that the field covering multiple neuritis has been, from time to time, so thoroughly gone over and so carefully examined as to leave little to be found that is new—unless perchance, it be the causes producing the disease. This, however, is not my intent to discuss in this paper, but on the contrary to report an infrequent and comparatively new complication associated with the disease—which, in my experience and in all literature I have been able to find on the subject, is unusual in its occurrence, and therefore should interest all who practice neurology. The case I shall discuss is one of ordinary multiple neuritis (typical in character) plus paralysis of the hypoglossal nerve—that was admitted to the Maryland General Hospital, Baltimore, Sept. 27, 1906, when I was a member of that staff, and which was treated by me, assisted both in diagnosis and treatment
