In the past five years we have had 36 cases of tropical sprue here, usually missionaries returned from the Orient. Before that time there were records of 15 cases among our patients. A great deal has been learned from a study of these cases, many papers appearing during this time on various aspects of the disease. We also have published different findings as they occurred in our cases.
We began our study of this condition with no preconceived ideas of any phase of the disease, as a matter of fact in gross ignorance of the entire subject except the name.
