Page 190 - Functional studies reveal only the excretory capacity of the kidney. By themselves they do not make the diagnosis or settle the prognosis. The value of any of these excretory tests is purely empirical, because of lack of sound physiological information dealing with the ultimate physics and chemistry of the excretion of any substance by any part of the kidney, the tubes or glomeruli.

Page 84 - Jan. 9, 1915) says (i) that a positive cutaneous reaction is less frequent in children than it was once thought to be, the high percentage of reactions obtained being due to the application of the test chiefly to infected children of the poorer classes and (2) that therefore a positive reaction is of greater significance than it is commonly supposed to be. (3) That while there is an increasing percentage of reactions with years, and a corresponding decrease in the value of the reaction, the view...
Page 307 - Diagnosis: thrombo-angeitis, and thrombophlebitis of the internal saphenous and some of its tributaries.

On December 26, 1908, the physical examination was recorded as follows: In the horizontal position, the right foot has a light shade of red; this is most marked over the big toe, and fades off towards the ankle. In the web between the third and fourth toes there is a superficial ulcer. On the...
Page 340 - ... the rapidity of which largely depends upon the excitability of the auricular tissue and the strength of current employed. The movements are regular ; they seem to consist of a series of contractions originating in the stimulated area and thence spreading over the rest of the tissue. The movement does not show any distinct sign of inco-ordination ; it looks like a rapid series of contraction waves passing over the auricular walls.
Page 278 - A train of symptoms, coupled with retardation of tissue metabolism and with inactivity of the reproductive glands, not only accompanies states of experimentally induced hypophysial deficiency, but is equally characteristic of clinical states of hypopituitarism. The more notable of these symptoms are a tendency, in the chronic cases, toward an unusual deposition of fat, a lowering of body temperature, slowing of pulse and respiration, fall in blood pressure, and oftentimes a pronounced somnolence.
Page 327 - Patients may suffer at one time from the migrating thrombophlebitis, at another from the progress of occlusive change in the deeper vessels. 6. One of the cases suggests the possibility that attacks of trouble in surface veins may occur simultaneously with similar exacerbations of disease in deep vessels of another limb. 7. The morbid process resulting in the production of cutaneous nodosities and thrombosed superficial veins is not dependent on varicosities, infections, or trophic disorders in the...
