DILATATION OF THE STOMACH.

DILATATION OF THE STOMACH. I place before you, this morning, a patient whose sallow complexion and expression of distress declare him to be a sufferer from chronic disease. He is about 50 years of age, though his whitened locks and bald crown seem to indicate a greater number of years. He is quite thin; his muscles are flaccid, and readily discernible through the dry and inelastic skin. In the left side of the scrotum hangs a considerable varicocele; the veins of the lower extremities are enlarged and tortuous; he is constipated and has long been a sufferer with internal piles. During the winter he complains of a hacking cough, but his thorax is everywhere extremely resonant; he has a chronic bronchitis with some degree of vesicular emphysema. The heart is not enlarged; there are no valvular murmurs, but the second sound is decidedly accentuated over the right ventricle. The liver is of normal size, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

I place before you, this morning, a patient whose sallow complexion and expression of distress declare him to be a sufferer from chronic disease. He is about 50 years of age, though his whitened locks and bald crown seem to indicate a greater number of years. He is quite thin; his muscles are flaccid, and readily discernible through the dry and inelastic skin. In the left side of the scrotum hangs a considerable varicocele; the veins of the lower extremities are enlarged and tortuous; he is constipated and has long been a sufferer with internal piles. During the winter he complains of a hacking cough, but his thorax is everywhere extremely resonant; he has a chronic bronchitis with some degree of vesicular emphysema. The heart is not enlarged; there are no valvular murmurs, but the second sound is decidedly accentuated over the right ventricle. The liver is of normal size,
