Abstract

It is thought that the following case should be recorded because of the apparently unique combination of lesions which were severe enough to cause death. It needs little comment. It does not resemble any other disease entity which I have been able to find, but, on the contrary, the clinical signs and symptoms are so clearcut that it seems to present an entity in itself. The clinical course and pathologic observations do not correspond with any clinical or pathologic condition within the knowledge of a considerable number of clinicians and pathologists who have seen the case. But because of these clearcut features, a similar case in the future might be recognized in time to permit a more complex study of the condition. I have been unable to find anything remotely resembling it in the literature. As complete a description as possible is therefore given, only impertinent details being omitted.
