Severe toxic symptoms have long been described in infants who are suffering from various intestinal conditions, but the peculiar group of symptoms to be discussed in this article have been brought to the notice of pediatrists very forcibly by Finkelstein and termed by him "alimentary intoxication." Of late, others have grouped these cases under the term "acidosis." Finkelstein's alimentary origin of this condition has not by any means been proven, and as to the acidosis, we have seen many patients who had no diminished carbon dioxid in the blood. This latter fact has been noted by Schloss1 and others. We have, therefore, been most careful in the selection of our title, for even the intestinal origin of this condition has not been proven.

The symptom complex is always associated with gastro-intestinal symptoms, and seems to occur almost wholly in the summer months, seen in our hospital wards from July
