CASE I.—RENAL SARCOMA IN A CHILD.
—A child, a year and a half old, was brought to me with a history of hematuria of four weeks' standing, and with a "lump" in the right side. The tumor had been discovered accidentally only a few weeks before the hematuria began; it was, therefore, impossible to determine when the growth had first developed. The child had always been fretful and poorly nourished, but had apparently suffered no pain until five or six weeks before I was consulted. There was a history of possible injury to the back some six months before the hematuria was noticed. A blow on the back was produced by the nurse letting the child fall in taking it out of the crib. The child cried a little after the accident, but was soon thereafter apparently none the worse for it. Family history was negative.
