          Oh sorry, I see what you mean Val. If it was severe paralysis, like Christopher Reeves for example, it could cause other complications that could cause death. If it's an old cert maybe they didn't bother with main cause, secondary cause etc and just listed the initial problem?

              These days if you're paralised they have machines that help with breathing etc. Didn't have them in the olden days, so she wouldn't be able to survive.

                thanks Wendy , I knew that was the case with Polio hadn't thought that any cause of Paralysis could affect you the same way , poor lady.

                  I found this brilliant site for old medical terms yesterday when I was trying to find out the cause of death of GGF in India

                    I have that site too Edna. Got a bit of a shock when i found the cause of my GGF's death. I see paralysis as a cause of death is on there.

                      Phthisis Pulmonisis turned out to be Tuberculosis as my GGF cause of death I would never have know that but for this site it is excellent ans shows many forms of use for the medical terms and where they were found.

                        I have often thought paralysis probably referred to a stroke, as I've also come across "paralysed down one side."

                          There is also "general paralysis [of the insane]" which is a polite term for syphilis.

                              would mostly be from a stroke, or could have been hemiplegia, where one side of the body is paralysed because of a stroke in one hemisphere of the brain. my ancestor had hemiplegia for 8 mths in 1881, so it depends on cause as to how long someone can survive.
