Six cases: I. carcinoma of the prostate; II. duodenal ulcer; III. haematuria; IV. carcinoma of the breast; V. carcinoma of the rectum; VI. burns: submitted for the Pattison Prize in Clinical Surgery, 1949
In these six cases which I have put forward, I feel
that though they are representative of the disease
or complication of the disease, they contain also
certain interesting points.
I have seen all these cases during my terms of
clinical surgery, or during my vacations in
Wards 5 and 6 of the Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh.
Of the cases, I have seen four of them fully from
the time of admission till they left the hospital
and for a period or time after the time in
hospital. ( cases II, IV, V) VI.). Of the other
two cases I nave only seen them for three-quarters
of the case.
