Abstract

The subject of pathology being especially important to the physician, I take pleasure in contributing a mite to our accumulation of knowledge upon that topic; and it is done with the confession that wher ever the writer has been wrong in his deductions and conclusions, it is for the reason that he has followed a rather obscure path, and not from the fact that the approval of others has been the incentive.

My subject, as indicated above, is the result of a post-mortem examination, and the conditions therein existing were so new, that they have been investigated and formulated with the belief that the presentation will excite at least a momentary interest.

I was called on the morning of January 30, 1885, to see a German woman, Æt. 36, VI-para, who had been attacked at four o'clock that morning with sudden pain in the bowels, followed by shock and syncope.
