PATHOLOGICAL SPECIMENS, WITH ACCOMPANYING HISTORIES.

PATHOLOGICAL SPECIMENS, WITH ACCOMPANYING HISTORIES. Case 1.—Ovaries and tubes from a white lady, æt. 34; no children, though she had been married fourteen years. History of pelvic pain and chronic invalidism for nearly twenty years. Had undergone much treatment by many physicians in different cities without benefit, and was now nearly worn out. Upon examanination, found enlarged ovary on one side and an adherent mass on the other, such as usually passes for pelvic cellulitis. Dr. J. recommended immediate removal of diseased organs. Patient was delighted at a definite proposition to do something, and she entered his private hospital for that purpose. Appendages upon both sides removed; ovary upon right side was as large as his fist, and contained blood and pus. Appendages upon left were densely matted together and adherent to anything they touched. Recovery has been perfect. It is now a year since the operation, and Mrs. S. is in perfect health.

Abstract

Case 1.—Ovaries and tubes from a white lady, æt. 34; no children, though she had been married fourteen years. History of pelvic pain and chronic invalidism for nearly twenty years. Had undergone much treatment by many physicians in different cities without benefit, and was now nearly worn out. Upon examanination, found enlarged ovary on one side and an adherent mass on the other, such as usually passes for pelvic cellulitis. Dr. J. recommended immediate removal of diseased organs. Patient was delighted at a definite proposition to do something, and she entered his private hospital for that purpose. Appendages upon both sides removed; ovary upon right side was as large as his fist, and contained blood and pus. Appendages upon left were densely matted together and adherent to anything they touched. Recovery has been perfect. It is now a year since the operation, and Mrs. S. is in perfect health. Case
