Abstract

A case of open ductus Botalli in a girl of 17, with necropsy, occurring at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in the last year, was carefully observed on Dr. Christian's service in the hospital for fifteen days, and notes were obtained of a previous examination four years before entrance. Diagnosis of the lesion was made during life. The completeness of the record of this case gives it that value as an aid to the diagnosis of the lesion which is common to all carefully observed single cases. The purpose of this paper is to present and comment upon this case, to summarize the recent uncollected cases, and to consider such points as these data seem to throw light on, but to make no attempt to repeat the general discussion of the subject so fully presented by Hochsinger,1 Wells,2 Abbott,3 and Goodman.4
