Mrs. S. was referred to me by Dr. John Hadley. The diagnosis of gallstones was made and operation was advised. The patient and her friends agreeing, the operation was performed at the Oil City Hospital, Feb. 16, 1905. Entering the peritoneal cavity, the fundus of the gall-bladder was found to be transmitted through a foramen in the liver. The lower margin of the foramen was about one-half inch from the thin edge of the liver, under which edge the gall bladder is usually found. I have never seen nor heard of such a formation before.
