During the time I was Resident Medical Officer
in the Dundee Parochial Hospital, from September 1900
to January 1903, I had under my care four patients
who appeared to be suffering from senile osteomalacia.
The fifth case occurred in the Dundee Western
Poor House and was under the care of Dr. George
Laurence, Dundee, who has kindly given me a short
record of the illness.
For the history of the sixth case, where the
disease occurred in a pregnant woman, I an indebted
to Professor Kynoch, Professor of Midwifery, St.
Andrews University, who has most kindly placed his
notes at my disposal. I saw the patient frequently
while studying in his wards in the Dundee Royal Infirmary.
