Self portraits

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In dealing with gastric contents, faesces and urine, chemically and bacteriologically, no very complex apparatus is required, and with a brief preliminary training any practitioner possessing the instinct of research may in a very few years acquire the power of perceiving, in many of the chronic gastro-intestinal conditions coming before him daily, order- pathological order if you will-where before he saw nothing but chaos. David Sommerville, Lancet 1910.
