Abstract: R.S. male, 42 years, was under treatment for rheumatic heart failure and residual embolic hemiplegia. One day he complained that some time after he had gone to bed, he felt a burning pain in the soles and hands, which kept him awake for more than two hours and then gradually subsided. At that time no importance was attached to the complaint, similar statements being a part of the chronic invalid's daily report. I advised the patient to warm his feet and hands if the pain returned.
