Stenosis of the aortic valve, with calcification, continues to attract the attention of clinicians and pathologists. The frequency with which this condition is found at autopsy, in contrast to the infrequency of its clinical diagnosis, and the unsettled state of opinion as to its etiology invite further study. To this end, 52 examples of aortic valvular disease have been selected from 4000 consecutive autopsies; these have been divided into significant groups, and subjected to clinico-pathological analysis. The results of this statistical study justify certain conclusions as to the etiology of this form of cardiac disease.
