On account of the marked blood picture the following case of lymphatic leukemia seems worth reporting:
—M. D., aged 60, Irish, a watchman. The family and past history are both unimportant. The patient denied any venereal disease and had never used alcohol. He had always been a strong, healthy, hard-working man.
—During the summer of 1903 he noticed enlarged glands in the neck, axillæ and groins, together with slight weakness. He had been unsuccessfully treated by several physicians. He first came under observation Oct. 28, 1904, complaining of general weakness, epistaxis and enlarged glands. He was put on potassium iodid, and in two weeks the glands had become smaller and softer; they soon regained their usual large size, however. The probable diagnosis of leukemia was made and the patient was put on Fowler's solution, which did not help him.
