The hemiplegia could have been due to a stroke 14 days before, and the first mentioned cause of death the acute occurrence preceding death. What is the date of death? A more archaic phrase may have been used for what is now called something else.

ADDED: Is this from ScotlandsPeople? The scans were done at low resolution originally. I understand they will respond kindly to a request for a clearer scan of a certificate you have paid for.

The second word ends in 'ing' I think...the writer's dots for 'i's are over to the right of the letter, the 'g' looks the same as in hemiplegia.

I think the first word in the first line is
cerebral

The second i am not sure of but my mind wants to see meninges.

Not sure if they would have cerebral and meninges in the same diagnosis?

Mmm possibly cerebral haemorrhage due to the earlier hemiplegia possibly caused by a stroke

Or some form of meningitis which can cause seizures a possible explanation why he ended up in the asylum

To me the first letter of the second word doesn't look like the 'M' of MacPhail or 'MD' nor to the 'H' of Hemiplegia.
'Cerebral' is inspired & certainly fits with the second phrase.
