Abstract

This case is reported because of the long period of remission, from fourteen to sixteen years.1 The longest remission that I have found recorded was ten or eleven years, reported by Stockton.2 His patient was without symptoms, except evidence of achylia gastrica, during that time.

REPORT OF CASE 

History.  —A man, aged 57, whose mother died of anemia and a brother died of anemia (types not known) while the patient was under observation, entered Glockner Sanatorium, April 26, 1921. The patient was always nervous, and never had been strong. In July, 1903, he was weak, lost weight, and had nausea, with occasional vomiting and palpitation. In three months he was much better. In March, 1904, he was worse, and was seen, June 20 of that year, by Dr. Frank Billings, who made a diagnosis of pernicious anemia. In October, 1904, he was seen by Dr. Charles G. Jennings
