This monograph represents the result of combined clinical and roentgenologic study made on the subject of ulcer during a two year period. The author shows himself to be thoroughly familiar with the present-day trends in Germany, particularly with the anatomic studies of Konjetzny and the radiologic work of Berg. The study is divided into two phases, clinical and x-ray. The latter portion is excellently and adequately illustrated by means of films which emphasize the importance of the direct signs of ulcer.

During the period described, the author performed fluoroscopy on 1,527 patients with abdominal complaints of various kinds and found roentgen evidence of gastric or duodenal ulcer in 23.7 per cent. Ulcer was the most common abdominal lesion found. The ratio of duodenal to gastric ulcer was 5.8: 1; the ratio of men and women afflicted was 80.99: 19.01. Duodenal ulcer was found to be more frequent between the ages
