The treatment of pernicious anemia with liver, introduced by Minot and Murphy1 in 1926, after the experimental work of Whipple and his associates, has had a remarkable effect on the clinical course of the disease. The response of the nervous manifestations has been discussed by various authors with considerable difference of opinion.
