Abstract

Répéka, a virgin, 15 years of age, of Armenian parentage, was brought to me, July 8, 1887, from Adana, with the following history: From the first appearance of her menses till five months previous to her visit to me, the menstruation had been free and regular, and with but little discomfort. At that time she was confined to her bed with neuralgic pain in the right ovarian region. After several days of a scanty flow of menses the pain left, but returned with the menses, after forty days, at which time she noticed a swelling in the right inguinal region, which was only slightly less in size than at present. Since then her menses have been very irregular and scant, and the pain which is present, more or less, all the time is greatly increased at the menstrual period, radiating from the swelling over the whole abdomen.
