That arteriosclerosis occurs in excessive degree in diabetic patients has found general acceptance among American students. The importance of characteristic metabolic changes of diabetes in its causation was pointed out in the first study of Deaconess Hospital autopsy data by Root and Warren.1 Further reports by Joslin2 emphasized the clinical significance of arteriosclerotic complications of diabetes, and Warren3 summarized the pathologic data bearing upon arteriosclerosis in a large series of diabetics.
