Case of an 18 year-old Irish girl, of two years duration at the time of the report and which Dr. Draper called "Trophic Neurosis of the Face." During his lecture Draper discussed other cases of facial hemiatrophy, and credited Romberg with the earliest description of the disorder (1837). However, an earlier case of Caleb H. Parry's was published posthumously in 1825 ("Collections from the unpublished writings..."; London, Underwoods, 1825 ).
