REPORT OF A CASE
Mrs. F. S., a Jewess, aged 39, was first seen in August, 1925, when she complained of hives of seven weeks' duration.
The family history was negative for allergic disturbances. The past history revealed no serious illness. The menses were normal. The patient had never been pregnant. She had suffered from constipation as long as she could remember. She had been nervous for three months owing to domestic difficulties, which, however, had been satisfactorily settled.
General physical examination and examination of the urine and stools gave negative results. The blood count, blood sugar and blood urea nitrogen were normal. A dental x-ray film demonstrated an abscess of one tooth, which was extracted. Gynecologic examination revealed a fibroid tumor of the uterus, to which no great attention was paid at the time. A complete series of food tests (scratch method) was made, with no definite results.
