Fat necrosis in general is reviewed. A case of fat necrosis of the breast is presented, the unusual feature about it being that instead of a localized lump in the breast, this case presented as a generalized swelling of the whole organ. Another interesting case of carcinoma of the breast presenting as an abscess is also descriptionbed. The point is made that not too much reliance should be placed on the elevation of the nipple and the breast in carcinoma.
Sickle cell anaemia in a young woman of Xosa-Liberian parentage is reported, and the pertinent literature reviewed. Radiographic changes in the bones are descriptionbed and illustrated. Treatment by early administration of oxygen and nicotinic acid is discussed.
