A clinical study of achlorhydria

  • Henry Moore
Article

Summary and Conclusion

Achlorhydria, besides being found in a certain proportion of apparently healthy persons, in many cases of gastro-intestinal disease and in odd cases suffering from miscellaneous disorders, is a frequent finding in diabetes mellitus and a still more frequent occurrence in hyperthyroidism and in the non-megalocytic, “hypochromic” anæmia above described; in the latter disease it seems to have causal relationship, either direct or indirect, but in the light of recent work on pernicious anæmia even this surmised causal relationship may not be the complete explanation. At any rate, this non-megalocytic form of anæmia is of frequent occurrence, and its adequate treatment with iron in the ferrous form by mouth gives satisfactory results.

It gives me great pleasure to acknowledge in this study the cordial co-operation of Dr. W. R. O’Farrell, Pathologist to the Hospital, and of Doctors L. K. Malley and M. A. Moriarty, while they were my House Physicians.
