∗ Dr. Claye Shaw, in a very interesting paper in St. Bartholomew's Hospital Reports, 1880, has described certain non-specific intestinal lesions in the insane. He there mainly refers to the production of ulcerations from the effects of long continued constipation or accumulation of undigested matters from irregular action of the intestine, liver, and pancreas. The causative condition in these lesions is mainly distension, acting mechanically, and one which in the oases here recorded we have carefully excluded.
