There is no evidence to show that hydatidiform mole associated with large ovarian cystomata is more likely to be followed by serious complications such as chorion epithelioma than moles unassociated with clinical enlargement of the ovaries. Three cases are reported, the first in which a serious error of judgment was committed. The second and third clearly demonstrate that large luteal cystomata will undergo complete spontaneous resolution in a comparitively short space of time and can therefore be safely left alone.
Review of problems concerning the clinical syndromes and the aetiology of manual acroparaesthesia. The existence of three distinct varieties of regional pattern is illustrated from an analysis of one hundred well-established cases. Gastro-intestinal disturbances, anaemias, urinary tract abnormalities and infections, and minor endocrine derangements were displayed by all the cases. The three varieties also differed from one another in respect of their selective emphasis on components of these associated clinical syndromes. Acroparaesthesia has a complex metabolic rather than local mechanical pathogenesis.
