This monograph offers a complete bibliography of the varicosities in the portal system. The author adds a carefully described case with its clinical history and the conditions found at necropsy. A huge splenomegaly was associated with the abnormal dilatations of the portal vein. The student of the peripheral vascular system will find a well organized assembly of curious pathologic manifestations which seldom obtain clinical significance.
