by OSLER, Sir William (1849-1919).
Philadelphia:: The Philadelphia Medical Journal, 1902., 1902. Offprint. 21x13 cm. 2 pp. Leaflet; extremities slightly worn. Good +. "In 1902, he wrote a paper on the occurrence of ascites in solid abdominal tumours. There was one perplexing case described in the monograph of a tumour mass of 10 months' duration in the right iliac fossa which, at laparotomy, was shown to be 'an extensive new growth involving the cecum and extending a short distance into the ileum'. This may have been an early description of Crohn's disease." – Hugh Chaun, "Sir William Osler and Gastroenterology", Canadian Journal of Gastroenterology, 2010. "This was a very favorite subject. The case that prompted this paper had been seen by many prominent men. No one recognized the solid tumor until Sir William examined it at once after tapping." – Golden & Roland. Golden & Roland 757. [HM] (Inventory #: M13507)
