The object of this paper is to present a statistical study of cases of aneurysm of the thoracic aorta at the Grady Hospital, Emory University Division. A series of seventy-one was selected. Necropsy was performed in thirty-two of these. A number of cases have been discarded because the diagnosis seemed uncertain and necropsy was not done. All patients were colored.
The seventy-one cases have been studied with regard to the following twenty-two points:
3. Admission Diagnosis
4. First Symptom
5. Chief Complaint
7. Initial Lesion
8. Wasserman Reaction
10. Aortic Second Sound
