ABDOMINAL CRISES CAUSED BY MECKEL'S DIVERTICULUM.

Abstract

Within a period of two months during the latter part of the last year, there occurred in my practice four cases of Meckel's diverticulum.1 In one of these cases, the diverticulum was the source of no trouble, but was met with during an operation for gunshot wound of the bowels. In the three other cases, the diverticulum was the occasion for the operation. This unusual experience aroused my interest in the subject and occasioned my determination to write the paper herewith presented. The basis of the paper consists of my personal experience, a study of the literature of the subject and an analysis of thereports of 184 cases which I have tabulated and which includes 35 cases not hitherto reported. It is, of course, not pretended that this list is complete, but it comprises all the cases I could find in the literature available that were reported sufficiently in
