The report of the following single case seems warranted on account of the infrequency of ante-mortem diagnosis, and because of the favorable outcome through the establishment of collateral circulation. We claim no credit whatever for the recovery course, and very little for the diagnosis, which we realize was the result of unusually favorable circumstances:
—A woman, American-born, aged 30, weighing about 125 pounds, and presenting a somewhat under-nourished and anemic appearnce. Family history good.
—No infectious or chronic diseases are reported, and no vaginal discharge, swelling of legs, or ascites up to the last pregnancy. Menses began at 14 and are of the regular twenty-eight-day type. Patient has four living children, the youngest born Dec. 20, 1912, and has had two miscarriages; one a pregnancy of a month's duration, between the second and third child, the other of three months' duration, between the third and the last.
