1. Four cases of fibrocystic disease of the pancreas are descriptionbed to illustrate the ways in which the disease may present and to show that more than one member of a family may be affected. 2. Reports from the literature indicate that the condition is transmitted as a simple recessive trait. 3. Points in the diagnosis and treatment are discussed and reference is made to a method which attempts to liquefy the tenacious mucus in the respiratory tract. 4. Cor pulmonale is mentioned as an additional complication.
