Weller has studied the pathological changes occurring in the testes of nine cases of acute alcoholic intoxication, all of them being coroner's cases in which death occurred during, or immediately after severe alcoholic intoxication. One of these, in a boy of 17 years, was a first experience; the others were probably an exacerbation of a more or less chronic or intermittent alcoholism. In all of these cases the germinal epithelium showed marked parenchymatous degeneration, leading when sufficiently marked to total aspermatogenesis, the various orders of maturing cells disappearing in an inverse order to that of their production and the basal
