No attempt will be made to review the literature, as this has been done so completely by Dr. George Dock2 quite recently.

We repeat the history of the case, as given in the other reports, together with the later developments:

History.  —The patient has lived in Decatur all his life; his habits have been good; he does not use alcohol, but he is a moderate smoker. He has had the usual diseases of childhood, with good recovery in all. No history of malaria or syphilis.

Present Trouble.  —The patient came to the office complaining of weakness, pain in the back and a feeling of weight and distress in the left side. Two years ago he had a fall, alighting
