ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION.

Space does not warrant more than a consideration here of fatty degeneration, somewhat in detail, with a short notice of fibroid degeneration; indeed, the explication of the first is none too full when the importance of the subject is noted. This medical contribution is contrary to the somewhat conventional pathology whose nomenclature ends in "itis."

THE FATTY DEGENERATIONS.

General Principals.—Fatty degeneration is where tissues that are normal parts of organs are replaced by fat in its many forms of oily, lardaceous, waxy, glassy, atheromatous, soapy and crystalline bodies. For example: a. When the muscular tissues of the heart are more or less changed into fat, it is fatty degeneration. b. When the circular muscular fibres of the arteries, the terminals of the arteries and the capillaries, are changed into cholesterine, it is fatty degeneration. c. When the kidneys are more or less changed into fat, it is fatty degeneration.
