It has been our privilege, during the present year, to see and study with others three cases of Addison's disease. Two were under observation at the Buffalo General Hospital, under the care of Drs. Cary and Rochester, respectively. Dr. Rochester's case was referred to him by Dr. Kavinoky. The third patient, a mulatto, was under the care of Dr. Himmelsbach. The autopsy findings and blood-picture in another case of Dr. Himmelsbach will also, with his permission, be included.

Various points of difference and interest occurred in the symptomatology and history of these cases. One of them gave a typical picture of Addison's disease. The other two presented features which would tend to confuse the observer and increase the difficulty of diagnosis. In one of the cases we made an adrenal transplantation. All three cases terminated fatally, but the result of the transplantation experiment justifies a repetition of this procedure.

The points of interest may be best brought out by an epitome of the case histories followed by a brief analysis.
