My attention was directed towards the investigation of spinal cord lesions in cases of visceral cancer by observing certain clinical symptoms which occurred in the later stages of cancer of the head of the pancreas. The symptoms pointed to inflammatory mischief of a myelitic nature, involving the cervical enlargement, and in one case in this series this diagnosis was verified on post-mortem examination of the cord. But with further investigation of a series of cases, lesions of a different nature were found, and it is a record of my findings in this series which forms the subject of my thesis.
