A REPORT OF THREE CASES.  I report the following cases because, from a casual search, I believe them to be somewhat unique both as to the gross and microscopic findings. The first two cases I saw with Dr. Stuart McGuire as his clinical assistant, the third in consultation with Dr. M. E. Nuckols. For the microscopic findings I am indebted to Dr. E. Guy Hopkins, of the Laboratory Department of the University College of Medicine.

Case 1.  —Referred to the Virginia Hospital by Dr. G. S. Bell of Oriental, N. C., and operated on by Dr. Stuart McGuire, May 1, 1903.

History.  —Mrs. W., aged 19, married, unipara, has always been a strong, healthy girl. She had the diseases of infancy, except diphtheria and scarlet fever. When she was 10 years old she fell across a wagon wheel and hurt her side, not seriously enough to confine her to bed.
