R. S., a white female of 57 years, complained of occasional attacks of palpitation and a gradually increasing sensation of "heaviness" in the left chest for four years. Her past history was not remarkable. She had never been outside the United States and since the age of five had resided in California. For the past 15 years she had had at least one pet dog which she had permitted to sleep
