ABSTRACT

Cases of complete transposition of the viscera are still rare enough to be classed as curiosities and each case reported is of interest if only because of that fact. We have the following case to add to the list:

Patient.  —J. W. B., U. S. Navy, native of Texas, aged 18.

History.  —Parents are both living and in good health; two brothers and one sister are living, also in good health, and with all viscera in normal position. The patient has had all the diseases of childhood, from which he made a good recovery. At the present time he is well built, strong and active, and able to do any kind of work and stand any hardship in the curriculum of a naval training. His condition was first noticed by one of the naval medical officers while on recruiting duty, and before whom the patient appeared for physical examination. Being physically strong, and in the best of health, this transposition could in no way interfere with his appointment to the navy.
