The lumbar sympathetic chains have been dissected in 32 cadavers. The following anatomical features of the ganglia are descriptionbed in detail: I. Configuration and shape. 2. Relationship to vertebral bodies. 3. Relationship to contiguous structures. It is considered that by means of these features the individual ganglia can be more accurately identified than has hitherto been possible.
