It is true that frequently no sharp line of demarcation can be demonstrated between the external coat of the vessels and the interstitial sustentacular tissue of organs, and this is especially true of the arcade arteries of the kidney. The smaller vascular branches do not present the same difficulty. No case has been placed under this head except those in which the line appears well established in consequence of the difference in the age of the respective tissues. 2. In twelve cases the intima alone was involved. 3. Especial reference has been made in five instances of thickening of the muscular media of the smaller vessels or renal arterioles. 4.
