Abstract

The following autopsy was made on an old man, in whose case the pathologic diagnosis was as follows: Senile marasmus (senile emphysema, senile sclerosis of the aorta, atrophy of the parenchymatous organs), scurvy (hemorrhagic gingivitis); chronic aortic and mitral endocarditis; fibrous myocarditis; chronic nephritis; caseo-calcareous areas in the right apex, spleen and left adrenal; double hydrothorax; bronchitis; fibroma of the stomach; amputation of the left lower extremity at the lower third of the thigh. The findings unrelated to the scope of the present investigations are omitted. The gums were found swollen, and here and there infiltrated with blood. There was purulent matter about the roots of the teeth, many of which were loosened and some of which could be removed with the fingers. The roots of the loosened teeth were covered with a granular, grayish material.

Only the lower frontal teeth and corresponding part of the jaw could be examined.
