Duodenal adenoma


An 1890 autopsy specimen from a 49 year old woman, admitted under Dr. Goodhart for jaundice with pyrexia and haemorrhage from the intestine. She died three months from the commencement of her illness. At autopsy two chronic ulcers were found in the rectum, and there were numerous small abscesses in the liver. The common bile duct was not obstructed.
