Case No. 2348. Epilepsy: aged 5 years: March 1944 child had a streptococci infection in inner ear. Started falling many times each day: often hurt himself. Child had a tonsillectomy, appendectomy, and hernia operation "since this trouble started." Child had first adjustment 8-22-45. Immediately after the first adjustment, "child became more alert and his eyes started getting clearer. His appetite increased and we noticed he wasn't so nervous." In the two weeks since the first adjustment, the child gained five pounds. Child was discharged and parents were advised to have child under observation for period of several months as the original NCM reading (pattern) has a good chance of returning. Child had a "mild attack" three months later and has since remained free of epileptic symptoms. Child had one adjustment in all. Child's father later entered Palmer School of Chiropractic.
