When, two years ago, three boys with incontinence of both urine and feces were brought to the Children's Dispensary, University Hospital, inside of three months, I reviewed the literature1 on incontinence of feces in childhood and could find altogether only twelve cases in children over three years of age.

History.  —His parents, who are well, are both short and stout. The father is a motorman. John is the fourth child, born after a protracted labor, without instruments, however. He was a large, well-developed baby at birth and had never been seriously ill. He was breast-fed until nine months of age, was then weaned, and given table food soon
