ACUTE DISTURBANCES OF NUTRITION
Metabolism Studies in "Dyspepsie" and "Intoxikation."—Jundell1 has studied the fat, nitrogen and mineral metabolism in two cases of "Dyspepsie" and in two cases of "Alimentären Intoxikation." The four infants were quite young, their ages ranging from 4 to 8 weeks, and all of them developed the conditions investigated while taking buttermilk to which was added a large amount of sugar. The sugar content of the milk was 8 per cent., and in one instance, 10 per cent. The food was continued through the periods during which the metabolism was studied. The symptoms of the condition designated "Dyspepsie" were severe diarrhea, five to ten thin, slimy or watery stools daily, occasional vomiting and stationary or declining weight. The onset of the symptoms was fairly abrupt. Two experimental periods of several days' duration were obtained from each infant. In the case of the infants developing "Intoxikation"
