Abstract

Two cases of paraplegia caused by head injuries sustained in recent military conflicts are presented. The underlying pathological disturbances could be related to the CT scan appearances and are discussed in the light of previously reported series. Both cases were remarkable for an early and prolonged paraplegia which was flaccid, rather than spastic, and for the sensory impairment produced.
