Notes :

THE following case was described by card before this Society on January 23, 1885 (see Transactions, vol. xviii, p. 325, "A Case of Hypertrophy of the Subcutaneous Tissues of the Face, Hands, and Feet"). About fifteen months later a brief paragraph appeared in the Lancet (April, 1886), headed " Acromegaly," and under this name we found that M. Marie had described a morbid state which tallied very closely with our case (Revue de Médecine, April, 1886). In view of the importance of our observation, as it now appears, we deemed it advisable to exhibit our patient once again to the Society, to reproduce our original account, and to put forward briefly the salient points of a condition which, in all probability, has a clinical and pathological history of its own. — Page 201.
