#2. The problem of the present work has been stated. The period of
the observations and the problems surrounding the collection of
these observations have been made clear.
#3. ík statement of the criteria adhered to in the collection of
these observations both as regards Hospital Case Records and
Personal Case Records has been made.
#4. A Series of Tables derived from these observations is included.
A number of Tables giving a Control Series from the work of
Shure (16) has been included.
#5. A study of the author's own observations has been made.
#6. The different aspects of the problem have been discussed.
A comparison between the author's results and those of others
has been made. A short summary of the various theories
regarding the aetiology of the late Toxaemias of Pregnancy
with the objections thereto is included. Finally, a discussion
of the theory of the relationship of Pyelitis of
Pregnancy to the late Toxaemias of Pregnancy, particularly
in regard to the criteria laid down by Browne (1), completes
#7. The conclusion is drawn, from the author's observations and
from examination of the literature, that Pyelitis of Pregnancy
does, in fact, bear a close relationship to the late Toxaemias
of Pregnancy, and that, while it is not the only factor
concerned, it is an important one, in so far as 44.73% of all
cases of Pyelitis of Pregnancy develop late Toxaemia of Pregnancy.
