Doubtless gangrene of the bladder in men is of more frequent occurrence than the number of reported cases would indicate. Besides Dr. Hagner's case, I have been able to find but twenty cases, eleven of which were fatal. The nine cases which recovered were all operated upon and have been reported during the more recent years. DR. G. S. WHITESIDE of Portland, Oregon: I am particularly interested in Dr. MacGowan's paper on hematuria, because I have recently had two cases similar to his.

In the other case, after splitting the kidney, I closed it up again without removing any part of it. The hemorrhage did not recur in the urine.
