Both the sensory changes and the reflex findings are of major diagnostic importance in juvenile paretic neurosyphilis. The present study, the fifth of a series of clinical studies of this disease, is concerned with the sensory changes including headaches, the status of the tendon and pathological reflexes, the temperature disturbances and the trophic changes in this disease. It is based on 43 personally studied cases and 610 cases reported in the literature.
Sensory disturbances in some form occur in juvenile general paresis in about 25 per cent of the cases, either as sensory skin changes, headaches, or leg
