Aortic stenosi due to presumed chronic rheumatic heart disease


A 1937 autopsy specimen from a 61 year old man who had suffered from dyspnoea on exertion, with occasional attacks of violent chest pain for many years. Despite his symptoms he continued with his work as a railway signalman and refused medical attention, dying in the street on the way home one evening.
