In surveying the literature on gastro-enterology for 1934 it has been my aim to present abstracts of only those articles which might be of interest and of practical value to the general practitioners of medicine who are familiar with the wide variety of gastro-intestinal disorders.

As some diseases have been given considerable attention and others none, the consequence is an unbalanced review of the very extensive field of gastro-enterology.
