Abstract

Subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord is a rare complication of vitamin B12 deficiency and is seldom encountered today. A case of Addisonian pernicious anaemia is reported in which the classical signs of subacute combined degeneration developed suddenly after air encephalography had been performed. The patient made a complete recovery.
