Excerpt from The London Medical Gazette, Vol. 1: Being a Weekly Journal of Medicine and the Collateral Sciences; For the Session 1839-40 Preliminary remarks respecting passive aneurism and diseases of the auricles. - Before entering, however, on the particulars ofany of those topics relating to cardiac diag nosis, it is necessary, or at least couve nient, that I should offer some preliminary observations, in order to explain why, in my enumeration of the species of heart disease that require each for itself a dis tinct account of its diagnostic symptoms, I pass over some topics much enlarged upon by preceding writers, and considered apparently of great importance. The topics I refer to are the varieties observed in morbus cordis, arising out of differences in different instances, in the distribution of the hypertrophy and enlargement; that condition being sometimes, it has been held, altogether wanting, but in most cases present, though not always equally di vided between the sides and cavities. And in the first place, let me guard my self against the suspicion of an unworthy desire to depreciate the meritorious and most useful labours of descriptive patho logists, by stating that [fully admit the existence, abstractedly considered, of al most every variety of heart disease pointed out by those who have studied the heart most exclusively after the Natural History method; and in the second place, that I acknowledge that most of the ya. Rieties described are of great importance, and such as to warrant fully the most ela borate descriptive histories that have been given of them.
