It is generally recognized that blood pressure is low in pernicious anemia, but the literature contains no adequate statistical study of the subject. Text-book articles on pernicious anemia usually state that the pressure is "low" or "very low." The present study is based on the blood pressure findings in 500 consecutive cases of pernicious anemia from the Massachusetts General and Peter Bent Brigham Hospitals. The observations were all made with the patient in bed by the the auscultatory method of Korotkoff. Analysis of the observations made showed only slight variations in the averages due to age or sex.
