Abstract

The writer has found 112 recorded cases of retroversion of the uterus examined by him in his office practice from June 10, 1900, to Jan. 9, 1903. An accurate and fairly comprehensive record of these cases has been kept in his case book. Such essential points as were omitted in the original entry have been looked up and duly entered.

A clinical study of these records was begun with the hope that the findings might be helpful in furnishing the writer with some positive indications for treatment of future cases. He has found the study profitable and herewith submits his findings, together with such remarks and conclusions as present themselves to him.

Unfortunately, forty-three of the 112 cases whose histories are recorded were seen by the writer but once or twice, so he can say nothing regarding their subsequent course. Fifty-six cases in all were treated by the writer.
