Excerpt from The Glasgow Medical Journal, Vol. 62: July to December, 1904
Movable kidney or ﬂoating kidney is frequently met with in association with colitis and with uterine disorders. The symptoms are referred, in many instances, to the right or left iliac fossa, or to both. The gynaecologist connects the pain in this situation with disturbance Of function, or alteration of structure or relations Of the pelvic generative organs, and treats it either on palliative or radical lines.
The surgeon, on the other hand, ascribing the pain to displacement Of the kidney, fixes that organ, while the physi oian, viewing the cause from a wider standpoint, feels entitled to condemn the diagnosis and practice of both.
