Though, comparatively speaking, embolism or thrombosis of the mesenteric vessels is rare, it is, nevertheless, one of the most serious of abdominal diseases. This, together with the facts that, until recently, the attention of the profession has not been called to the condition by any comprehensive article, and that those existing are not in the English language; that it forms a disease picture of very difficult clinical diagnosis, and that in any case, operation offers practically the sole chance of recovery, seems to us to justify this investigation.

In the list of cases, 214 in number, on which this article is based, an attempt has been made to collect those cases occurring in our Boston hospitals, and further to collect all those which were accessible from friends in the profession and from the literature. In every case, where possible, the original report has been consulted.
