From Jan. 1, 1907, to Jan. 1, 1916, my clinical records show that we have handled, in our office, sixtyseven private cases in which a diagnosis of seminal vesicultis has been made, most of which were complicated by prostatitis. We have subsequent reports on fifty-two. Of these sixty-seven cases, eight operations were performed for diseases of the vesicles, a rather large percentage as compared with other records. The following clinical symptoms, some of which were present in all cases, and all of which symptoms were present in some of the cases, are reviewed:
Temperature and symptoms of sepsis with blood changes, twelve times.
Pain in the end of penis, thirty-eight cases.
Heavy feeling in the perineum, thirty-six cases.
Burning after urination, nineteen cases.
Pain in the back, fourteen cases.
Pain and heavy, sore feeling in the groin, thirty-two cases.
Pain on ejaculation at some time in the history of the
