While on the house staff of the Cook County Hospital two cases of gangrenous pancreatitis came under my observation. Although the knowledge of pancreatitis has greatly increased during the past few years instances of this interesting disease are still so infrequent that the following cases are deserving of report: Case 1. —Susie L., age 47, white, married, Irish; was admitted to the service of Dr. J.

The last labor occurred twelve years ago and in all labors the puerperium was normal. The menses were always normal. She denied all syphilitic history. Her daughter informed us later that for the past nine years she had been drinking brandy to excess. The patient informed us that she had had "Bright's
