Abstract

Until the past live months, from an experience covering a period of fifteen years in the treatment of tuberculosis, a case of marked hemorrhage from the bowel has never occurred among our patients. Nor in a systematic search of the literature have we been able to find reference to such a condition. Dr. Sherman G. Bouncy of Denver has sent us a. report of two cases coming under his observation. Col. George E. Bushnell, Maj. C. E. Koerper and Capt. E. H. Brims, of the United States General Hospital for Tuberculosis, Fort Bayard, N. Mex., all inform us that no such condition has been met with in their work there. Beginning with June, 1911, however, we have had three cases which, together with those of Dr. Bonney's, form the basis of this report.

Case 1 (Bonney).  —Patient dead after marked hemorrhage from bowel.

Case 2 (Bonney).  —Male, aged 42. Tuberculosis
