I have just summarized represent only the means to the great end for which we, as a Society, exist — viz., "the promotion of knowledge in all that relates to obstetrics and the diseases of women and children." I now come to the most important part of the year's record, which is the work that we have done. I take the various subjects we have considered in the order usually followed in systematic works.Page 76
Watts' patient had a vaginal cyst which bulged from the anterior vaginal wall in the position of a urethrocele. The urethra was, however, quite normal. He laid open the cyst per vaginam, and to his surprise was able to pass a probe several inches without the slightest resistance. The probe passed to the patient's left side, and its tip was easily felt at a point midway between the umbilicus and the left anterior superior iliac spine. Watts thought this probe had penetrated to the peritoneal cavity,...Page 156

If it run a favourable course, the fits cease, then tbe urine increases in amount, and the percentage of urea in it rises. If the excretion of urea be not reestablished, the case quickly ends fatally. Such cases seldom, if ever, pass into chronic Bright's disease. The other is a disease which attacks older subjects, chiefly those who have had children before. Its premonitory symptoms extend over a period measurable by weeks or months.Page 11
DISEASES OF WOMEN. A Clinical Guide to their Diagnosis and Treatment. By G.Page xxxiii
There are at least two kinds of renal disease to which a pregnant woman is specially liable. One of these is a very acute disease, in which premonitory symptoms are either absent or of duration measurable by hours or days. It attacks chiefly primigravidse. It often causes intra-uterine death of the child. It is attended with extreme diminution of the quantity of urine, and the small quantity of urine that is passed is greatly deficient in urea, but contains enough albumin to make it solid on boiling....Page 11
... of both portions of the duct. 4. Attention is drawn to these cases as affording explanations of some obscure cases of profuse watery discharge from the vagina, not coming from the uterus or bladder. 5. The question of treatment is also approached, and the opinion is expressed that where the whole duct is distended the vaginal part of the cyst may be laid open as far as the base of the broad ligament, and the broad ligament portion encouraged to contract and close up.Page 168
... before. Its premonitory symptoms extend over a period measurable by weeks or months. It often leads to intra-uterine death of the child. It is accompanied generally by increase in the quantity of urine, with copious loss of albumin, but not so much in proportion to the urine as in the more acute disease, and with diminution in the elimination of urea, but not nearly so great a diminution as in the more acute disease. Delivery is followed by temporarily increased diuresis and increase in the urea...Page 49
When the pressure within the abdomen is greater than usual the amount of urine may be diminished, but in such cases the diuresis and the augmentation of the urea elimination after delivery are proportionately greater. In the acute disease which causes eclampsia, and in the chronic disease when it is associated with excessive intra-abdominal pressure, much of the albumin is paraglobulin.Page 49
THE author points out that the form of pelvic inflammation with which small suppurating cysts of the ovary and ovarian abscesses are usually associated is not pelvic cellulitis, but salpingitis, the ovarian suppuration being due to secondary infection.Page 277
