ABSTRACT
The problem as to whether Buerger's disease exists or not was dismissed by moans of analyzing the clinical findings on 360 cases of the chronic arterial occlusion in the extremities, specimens on 37 cases of the amputated extremities, and operative findings on 45 cases of the arterial occlusive disease in the etremities. The results of our study were as follows: (1) The atherosclerotic lesions in the extremities were relatively infrequent in our cases. (2) The cases regarded as those which were described by Buerger were about one-third of all cases. (3) In the latter group occurrence in young male adults was noted, main arteries below the knee and the elbow were frequently involved, lesions were also frequently observed in the upper extremities, and migrating phlebitis was characteristic. (4) Acute stage of arterial inflammation was confirmed in the radial arteries of five cases. (5) From these data, about two-these and one-fourth of 258 cases were supposed to ito Buerger's disease and arteriosclerosis obliterans, respectively. (6) In Japan, arteriosclerosis obliterans seems to by infrequent and Buerger's disease seems to he frequent, whereas the former is very frequent in the United States. In conclusion, we think Buerger's disease does exist from the stand point the our clinical and pathologic experiences.
