This paper, originally published in 1883 and here reprinted, describes in great detail the clinical features and history of a typical case of the disease which bears Barlow's name, followed by an analysis of 31 other cases. Post mortem examinations of 3 cases established the haemorrhagic naturte of the characteristic sub-periosteal swellings.
