CreatorBailey, Percival, 1892-1973
Date of Original1939-1960
DescriptionAs found with the documentation: METASTATIC HYPERNEPHROMA NA 23/47 53 year old male with an 8 month history of weakness of the left leg and left arm, occasional dizzy spells and evidence of moderately advanced arteriosclerosis and mild hypertension. Examination showed weakness of right lower facial muscles, and a mild left spastic hemiparesis, hyperreflexia on the left with scissors gait (a dragging gait in which the left leg was swung widely and 'scissored') and was considered to be suffering from a pontine vascular lesion. Four months prior to death he began to have Jacksonian seizures beginning in the left foot and progressing superiorly. During the ensuing re-hospitalization, arteriograms revealed several small metastatic brain lesions, after which a hypernephroma was found on the right kidney. X-ray radiation over the metastatic sites reduced the frequency of the seizures, but the patient complained of more severe headaches and weakness, suffered a pathologic fracture of the left femur, found due, like wise, to a metastatic lesion. The patient expired shortly thereafter.
