A bird’s eye view of the literature was offered. The procedures here emphasized amply served the writer as a multiphasic approach for taking guess-work out of empiricism. Examination of the stool for occult blood, with evaluation of the gastric chemistry and roentgenologic survey of the gastroenteric tract, constituted a diagnostic tripod, if and when understandingly performed.
