—M. S., a boy, aged 18, white, was admitted to the medical service of Mercy Hospital, March 12, 1925, at 6 p. m., complaining of agonizing pain over the whole surface of the chest and the epigastrium. This pain was not referred to the arms or to any other part of the body; it was constant, though it waxed and waned in intensity. He had suffered in this manner throughout the day, though not so intensely. There had been nothing unusual in his habits, diet, health or exercise to account either to himself or to his family for the occurrence of this seizure; he had never had a previous attack. During the few days preceding, there had been no symptoms of ill health, and this attack was ushered in with no symptoms except the pain.March 3, the patient had been admitted to the surgical clinic of Mercy Hospital
