In January, 1918, a patient in whom there was a retrograde movement of a ureteral calculus was referred to me. Though Kretschmer1 has since reported two cases of the sort, I was unable at that time to find a report of a similar case.
REPORT OF CASE
—A man, aged 29, first appealed for medical advice in March, 1917, when he had his first attack of pain in the right back radiating into the abdomen, right thigh and penis. This was associated with vomiting, voiding of bloody urine and frequent desire to void. The attack required a number of hypodermic injections of morphin for relief. Three months later he had four similar attacks within ten days. He had always been delicate as a child, and had all the diseases of childhood. The father and mother were living and well. There was no tuberculosis or cancer in the family.
