Abstract

The examination of the records of the cases of saccharine diabetes treated in the wards of the Massachussetts General Hospital during the past seventy-four years was begun for the purpose of seeking evidence with regard to the pancreatic origin of this disease. (See Yale Medical Journal, 1898, iv, 275.) Since several hundred volumes were to be searched it seemed desirable to obtain at the same time information upon other points which might contribute to the statistics of diabetes. Facts of interest in diagnosis and treatment were elicited as the study progressed and this paper is offered rather as a historical sketch of the progress of a disease drawn from the original records than as an attempt to advance in any way our knowledge of the subject. Since diabetes mellitus was first sharply differentiated from diabetes insipidus early in the present century, the hospital records may be considered to be nearly
