An intense and widespread interest has been manifested in the disease described by Parry, in 1825, and by Romberg, in 1846, and named by Eulenburg, in 1871, progressive facial hemiatrophy. In recent years many articles have appeared on this subject in English, German and French. Among these the monographic work of Archambault and Fromm1 is outstanding. Not only the neurologist but the internist, the pediatrician, the dermatologist, the surgeon, the ophthalmologist and the cosmetologist have contributed to the literature on this subject. This fact is the more remarkable since progressive facial hemiatrophy hardly presents diagnostic or therapeutic problems of magnitude. It is rather the great variety of clinical features and the pathogenesis of this puzzling disease that have attracted such widespread attention. From this standpoint the following clinical observations are noteworthy.
