This contribution represents a study of the lesions of the capillaries in organs in which either the main arterial trunk or veins reveal sclerosis. In the lung, pancreas and kidney the vascular lesions show arteriosclerosis; in the liver and spleen, phlebosclerosis. In the former, the capillary lesions are affected by forward intravascular pressures, in the latter by backward pressures. In previous publications1, 2, 3 I tried to show that prolonged normal intravascular pressure is the dominant conditioning factor in the production of arteriosclerosis and phlebosclerosis and that these lesions come earlier and are intensified under the influence of its increased
