During the past five years 123 spastic children have been examined in the children's psychologic clinic of the University of California Medical Center. Because of the frequent differences of opinion as to causation of spasticity in children and as to the role played by birth injury in the production of this condition, it has seemed desirable to analyze the records of these children with the purpose of determining as many as possible of the factors which may have played a part in the production of the condition. There is also included a brief summary of the spastic child's condition, his mental capacity and the extent of his physical disability. Of this whole group of 123 children, 10 were reported by the parents to have been normal until they had severe illnesses, after which paralysis and in some cases epilepsy remained. These 10 children have not been included in the analysis
