ABSTRACT
The article cites a study on the occurrence of chronic rheumatic heart disease in Ranchi, India. In this study two hundred cases of rheumatic heart disease admitted to the medical and pediatric wards of Rajendra Medical College Hospital between 1965 and 1975. The subjects were thoroughly interrogated about their past illnesses and dietetic habits and were examined clinically for valvular involvements. The highest incidence of chronic rheumatic heart disease was found to be in the age group under 25 years. The past history of rheumatic activity was obtained in a large majority of cases.
