Plate 32

FIG. 13. Valvula foraminis ovalis markedly sacculated toward left atriinn and showing multiple perforations of considerable size. No clinical history. Dissecting room specimen “from an old man” sent in by Dr. John Donaldson. University of Pittsburgh.

FIG. 14. Drawn from specimen No. 3027, Pathologisch-Anatomisches Institut. Vienna. The heart was from a charwoman who died suddenly of pulmonary thrombosis at the age of 52 years. Rokitansky (I 75, p. 52) gives a brief unillustrated record of the case. The heart was “very large, 90 mm. long and 115 mm. broad” with rormded apex. The similarity of the morphological picture presented by this adult heart and the infant heart shown in Fig. II is interesting.
