Abstract

As I exhibited the first of the patients to a number of the members of the American Urological Association, and both patients at the meetings of the Chicago Urological Association in October and November last, there will be no difficulty in verifying the findings given below. As the cases already have been reported in detail, I will give at this time only a brief outline:

REPORT OF CASES 

Case 1.  —A man, aged 30, had completely lost both testicles from infection following trauma. There were moderately marked feminine secondary sex characteristics; excessive and feminine distribution of fat was especially noticeable. There was complete impotence, with decided mental and physical inefficiency. Double scrotal implantation of entire testicles was performed, Aug. 1, 1915. The material was taken from a boy of 14, killed by a crushing injury. The testes were removed six hours after death, and kept on ice for thirtythree hours.
