The patients with hemiplegia were investigated if they have some trouble in their knees or not. Of twenty-eight hemiplegic in-patients, ten (35%) had painful knee, nineteen (67%) had osteoarthritic changes at involed side. Osteoporotic changes were seen in most patients. OA changes were seen with greater frequency in patients with duration of seven months or more than those of six months or less. And those changes were seen more frequently in wheelchair group than in ambulatory one. OA changes were not related with spasticity or sensory disturbance. (p>0.05). Discussion was made about these findings.
