It has long been known that sudden occlusion of the internal carotid artery may produce enough interference with the blood supply of the cerebral hemisphere on the same side as to cause severe symptoms. However, the role of minor trauma to the internal carotid artery in the production of cerebral dysfunctions appears to have been given insufficient attention, although Makins3 did raise the question whether spasm might be involved in cases of contusion of this vessel. The purpose of this report is to record a series of observations in which cerebral symptoms were produced from penetrating
