Hydrocephalus. Case No. 2887.

From the paper:

A baby was diagnosed as hydrocephalus in a large university hospital and was brought in for chiropractic “very soon after effect (enlarging of the head) was first noticed.” Thus, permanent damage apparently was slight. Had many months passed before case was brought to Chiropractic, the chances for recovery would have been greatly decreased and there would have been the probability of greater permanent distortion even though causative factor had been entirely removed.

The above is the case of a three-month-old male infant that had a “normal birth: no instruments used.” The MD had noticed that the baby’s head was growing faster than the rest of the body and the baby was diagnosed with hydrocephalus with “no hope held out for his recovery.”

A few days after his first adjustment the skin on his head appeared “looser” and child was able to “wrinkle brow more”. Eyes did not seem so deep-set. Both the bowel and urine developed a strong odor.

By the 16th visit (approx. 3 weeks after 1st adjustment) “Skin breaks out from poison in urine. Head change in shape and size; not so feverish.”

Three days later “head gone down 1 ¾ inches [in size].”

After a month at the clinic, the parents were instructed to take the child to their local chiropractor for continued observation.

A year later the child continued to do well and was developing normally. “His head size is out of proportion with his body size but he still has a lot of growing (in his body) to do.”

The child had one adjustment.
