the pylorus, hypertrophied, sunken, and movable, formed a tumor sensible to the touch, sometimes to the right, sometimes to the left of the umbilicus. At last under the right false ribs another hard tumor was found, slightly, indented, not well defined, but painful when pressed, and which gave rise to the idea that a new growth depended from the liver.

but repeated examinations showed that its size was very variable, that prolonged pressure of the fingers caused its gradual disappearance, and that is was most evident during the violent gastric crisis from which the patient suffered.

it was caused purely by the contractions of the hypertrophied muscle, on the right side, resting upon a solid surface formed by the increased mass of the liver,.

The urine, which was dark and somewhat turbid, deposited a large sediment, composed of urate of ammonia, with a few crystals of oxalate of lime and a few cells of renal epithelium.

at times a pellicle formed on its surface after standing (Carbonate of Zinc?). A specimen was examined.

Nausea, with retching and vomiting of bitter slimy liquid, and at last of food, with shocks of coughing, with a feeling of warmth, especially in the abdomen, perspiration, chilliness over the arms, shuddering of the body, empty eructations, hiccough, rumbling and griping in the abdomen.
