Abstract

Fifteen cases of Caisson's Disease or Decompression Sickness with spinal cord involvement treated at the Department of Rehabilitation Tan Tock Seng Hospital, from 1973 to 1978 are described. All the cases had bladder and bowel function involvement. Five cases developed bone complications, one of whom was referred to us primarily for rehabilitation after he had an operation for collapsed right femoral head which occurred two years after the incident.
