Chronic articular rheumatism from the anatomical standpoint is invariably of the same character irrespective of its localization, but from the clinical standpoint its manifestations are polymorphous. Particularly interesting is the affection when it is localized in the vertebrae and especially in the intervertebral spaces, because in some such cases the course of the manifestations may be so insidious that their evaluation may be overlooked for a long time until gross, serious and incurable symptoms referable to the spinal cord via the roots become conspicuous. The two cases reported below present a striking illustration of such an occurrence.
