In 1935 White1 reported a study of 15 cases of constrictive pericarditis. These, together with additional cases, have been the subject of later reports by Harrison and White2 and Paul, Castleman and White.3 The last report, in 1948, comprised 53 cases. The present study includes: a long-term follow-up of the 26 patients living at the time of the 1948 report; 25 additional cases seen through 1954, and a review of the entire 78 cases, 65 of whom were operated upon. Two cases seen at this hospital in the latter period have not been included because of their short hospitalization period.
