On the Diagnosis and Treatment of the Varieties of Dyspepsia : Considered in Relation to the Pathological Origin of the Different Forms of Indigestion (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from On the Diagnosis and Treatment of the Varieties of Dyspepsia: Considered in Relation to the Pathological Origin of the Different Forms of Indigestion IN spite of the numerous works which have of late appeared on the diseases of the Stomach, I have constantly found, while engaged in the practical instruction of students, that they experience greater difficulties in the diagnosis of the different forms of Dyspepsia, and in the application of the appropriate remedies for these disorders, than in the treatment of almost any other class of diseases. The reason for much of the uncertainty which has attended this branch of medical practice, has appeared to me to lie in the fact that the various derangements of the digestion are so universally regarded as being of a purely functional nature and although many recent authors have recognised the error of this view, it is one which nevertheless still largely prevails, and can only be overcome by a persevering study of the patho logical changes undergone by the stomach, which underlie these disturbances in its functions.
