Our interest was aroused in the significance of the association of duodenal ulcer and polycythemia vera as a result of observation of a patient who had both diseases. A review of the literature revealed interesting speculations in regard to the association of these conditions because of recent demonstrations of the relation of gastric secretion and hematopoietic function. It seemed reasonable that with the large amount of material available at this clinic some conclusions might be drawn as to the incidence of association of these diseases.
In the available medical textbooks, the gastrointestinal symptoms associated with polycythemia vera are minimized. Osler1
